The Nursing Assistant: Understanding Abuse and Neglect

Frail health and mental impairments can leave a nursing home resident powerless against abusive behavior and neglect. Situations in which residents are physically or emotionally mistreated usually take place when a caregiver becomes angry or impatient, or tries to control a resident by force. When a nursing home admits a resident, the facility and its staff become responsible for his or her safety and well-being.

This program provides caregivers with an understanding of what constitutes abusive and neglectful behavior. We will also discuss some of the signs indicating that a resident may have been the victim of mistreatment.


After completing this course, the learner should be able to:
  • Define abuse and neglect
  • Describe examples of abuse and neglect
  • Describe misuse of restraints
  • Describe an example of the misuse of a residents personal property
  • Describe the action that should be taken when a CNA notice signs that a resident may have been abused or neglected
