Nursing home abuse and neglect can take many forms. One form of nursing home abuse are those acts involving sexual assault and sexual abuse. These sex crimes happen at nursing homes (as well as similar health care facilities such as assisted living facilities, rehabilitation centers, hospices, etc.), and due to the nature of the crimes are likely (largely) underreported. These sex crimes are performed either by nursing home staff or by another nursing home resident. The Chicago Nursing Home Sexual Abuse And Sexual Assault page discusses various aspects of these sexual incidents, including signs that might indicate such abuse and assaults are happening.
