What do I do if I suspect nursing home abuse or neglect?
If you suspect that your loved one is suffering abuse in a nursing home, there are steps you can take to help protect your family member’s safety and rights:
- Try to verify your loved one’s story.
- Immediately transfer the victim to a safer environment.
- Report the abuse to Colorado’s Adult Protective Services.
