Nursing Home Sexual Assaults Committed By Residents

Sexual abuse and sexual assault that happens to residents of nursing homes is an ongoing significant concern.  As seen in many statistics and news stories, as well as allegations made in many nursing home lawsuits, sex crimes committed against nursing home residents are numerous.  This abuse and rape is often committed by other nursing home residents, as well as by nursing home staff.

On this site, nursing home sexual abuse and assault is discussed both on the “Chicago Nursing Home Sexual Abuse And Assault” page – which also discusses various possible “signs” of such acts – as well as in individual posts found in the “Nursing Home Sexual Abuse And Assault” category.

Another alleged instance of sexual molestation of a nursing home resident has been reported in New York.  A nursing home resident in New York, Thomas Moore, has been charged with regard to sexually abusing another resident at a nursing home.

An excerpt from The Buffalo News article of March 21, 2017, titled “Assault at nursing home raises questions about why sex offender was living there“:

Authorities accused Moore of entering the room of another Waterfront resident at about midnight on Jan. 3, pulling off her blanket and molesting her. Police arrested Moore nine days later, charging him with sexual abuse of a person incapable of giving consent and with endangering the welfare of a physically disabled person.

The police report filed after Moore’s arrest said the woman had told Moore to leave her room “multiple times” before he came in at midnight, pulled down her blankets and molested her.

The March 21 wgrz.com article (with video) titled “Man charged with sexual abuse in nursing home” also discusses this incident.

Lawsuit Concerning Various Injuries From Nursing Home Slip And Fall Accident

Falls that happen in nursing homes and similar health care facilities remain a substantial health concern, as such falls often lead to serious and possibly life-threatening injuries.  Residents of nursing homes can be particularly susceptible to injury due to many factors, including age.

The type of injuries due to these falls is broad, and can include traumatic brain injuries (TBI) as well as various fractures.  On this site, reasons for falls are discussed both on the “Nursing Home Resident Falls” page as well as many posts in the “nursing home falls” category.  Additional commentary concerning falls can be seen in the following pages:

Preventing Falls In Nursing Homes

Due to the number of residents who fall in nursing homes, as well as the accompanying accident injuries which are often serious in nature, nursing home falls often lead to lawsuits against the nursing home or other long-term health care facility.

An example of a lawsuit against a nursing home for alleged injuries suffered during a “slip and fall” accident at a Pennsylvania nursing home is described in the March 9, 2017 PennRecord article titled “Lawsuit:  Wallingford nursing home negligent in causing plaintiff’s injuries.”  An excerpt regarding the alleged injuries stemming from the plaintiff’s fall, which is claimed to have happened due to a “slippery accumulation of water on the floor”:

The plaintiff says she suffered multiple injuries due to the accident, including a right fibular fracture, cervical spine injuries, right shoulder injuries, soft tissue edema, significant pain and suffering, anguish, scarring and/or disfigurement.
