Nursing home abuse can be:

How Do You Report Nursing Home Neglect or Abuse?

Reporting abuse or neglect can be difficult or intimidating, but it can also save lives. If you believe someone is being abused or neglected at the nursing home, you should immediately call 911 or another first responder. Do not wait.

After getting the individual immediate care, you can contact the Georgia Department of Community Health, Healthcare Facility Regulation division to report the nursing home facility. You can also fill out an online form on their website reporting elder abuse here.

  • Taking photos
