Our elders, in particular, should be free of abuse in their time of need. Nurses, doctors, and other nursing home employees are expected to be attentive and compassionate. Because of physical or cognitive conditions, nursing home patients are often unable to prevent theft of their money or belongings or even know if it occurs. Unfortunately, there are people who are willing to take advantage of vulnerable populations.
In some cases, there have even been nurses or other employees convicted of emotionally manipulating their elderly patients into giving them money. Since many older people have accumulated wealth over their long lives, people who are supposed to take care of them sometimes only see the possibility of getting more money. By winning the trust of patients for financial gain, they disregard the people they are caring for as human beings who deserve their respect, and instead only see an open wallet.
If you have fallen victim to manipulation and theft, or if you suspect that someone you love has fallen victim to a nursing home employee’s willingness to exploit people for financial gain, you are entitled to take legal action to put an end to abuse.
