New Resource on Resident to Resident Mistreatment

Aggression between residents of long-term care facilities is a serious, yet often hidden, problem.  All residents have the right to be free from all forms of abuse, neglect, and exploitation, and have rights if they have been subject to mistreatment.  Newly released from the National Consumer Voice for Quality Long-Term Care and the National Center on Elder Abuse, this brochure identifies types of mistreatment, shares information about an individual’s rights, and offers resources on where they can go for help.

Please visit the National Long-Term Care Ombudsman Resource Center for more information and to view the brochure.
