Due to a number of medical conditions, including dementia and Alzheimer’s Disease, residents in nursing homes are vulnerable to sex abuse by staff members and other nursing home residents. Our Michigan nursing home sex abuse lawyers file lawsuits on behalf of residents who are sexually abused at a nursing home. Because nursing home residents are often weak and unable to communicate, they are very vulnerable to sex abuse by both staff members and other residents.
Sex abuse by a nursing home staff member is more common than most people would think. Nursing homes are required by law to screen potential employees for their past criminal records, but quite often prior sex offenders are not screened and are given employment at the facility. These individuals prey on the residents who are unable to protect themselves and cannot speak out against these disgusting acts. When a resident is sexually abused by a staff member, a lawsuit can be filed against the nursing home.
Sex abuse by other nursing home residents also occurs, especially in settling in which co-ed residents reside on the same floor or hallway. Residents who are weak and unable to resist abuse or unable to communicate are an easy target for sexual abuse by another resident. When sexual abuse occurs from another resident, this also provides a basis for a nursing home lawsuit.
