Nursing Home Sexual Abuse Lawyer
Sadly, nursing home residents often become victims of sexual predators due to their inability to protect themselves. Because they may not be capable of warding off unwanted contact, they require special protection from assault. They also tend to have impairments that prohibit them from communicating that abuse has occurred. Our law firm represents victims of sexual abuse by insuring that abusers are held accountable for their behavior.

Sexual Abuse in Arizona Nursing Homes
Sexual abuse takes many forms. In nursing homes, it can involve inappropriate touching, forced nudity, unwanted sexual advances, and sexual assault/rape. The perpetrators can be staff members, other residents, volunteers or visitors to the nursing home.
There are many ways that nursing homes contribute to sexual assault and other forms of sexual abuse at their facilities:
- Failing to conduct adequate background checks on employees
- Providing insufficient supervision of employees
- Failing to prevent sexual abuse by another resident
- Insufficient monitoring of visitors to the nursing home
Nursing homes should provide a safe and caring environment for all residents, but they often fail to protect the very people they are charged with serving. They do not always properly screen or supervise employees, and they neglect to monitor other residents who are known to engage in inappropriate physical or sexual behavior, often due to dementia.
