Nursing home abuse and neglect is preventable with properly trained staff working for organizations which place resident care and quality of life as priorities.

Bemidji elder abuse comes in a variety of forms some more subtle such as ignoring the urgency of Delay in Answer Call Lights to more extreme forms where residents are allowed to sit in their urine and feces to predictably get urinary tract infections and nasty dangerous pressure sores as known as bedsores. Another common form of neglect includes falls from either a failure to respond to call lights for residents who need to be toileted often leading to falls with fractures, frequently causing death.
