Nursing Home Sexual Assault

Lawyers for Sexual Abuse Victims in Assisted Living Facilities and Nursing Homes

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. Our lawyers also hold facility owners and managers accountable for poor hiring practices as well as negligent training and supervision.

At Solomon & Relihan, we have been representing the victims of personal injury for more than 40 years. We have helped thousands of injury victims hold wrongdoers accountable for the harm they have caused. We also have been instrumental in getting nursing homes and assisted living facilities to alter their practices and protect their residents more effectively.

 

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.
