Substantiated Allegation of Physical Abuse by Staff at Signe Olivias Ogilvie
According to the Prevent Elder Abuse Physical Abuse and Neglect, indicators are signs or clues that abuse has occurred. Physical indicators may include injuries or bruises, while behavioral indicators are ways victims and abusers act or interact with each other. Many of the indicators listed below can be explained by other causes (e.g. a bruise may be the result of an accidental fall) and no single indicator can be taken as conclusive proof. Rather, one should look for patterns or clusters of indicators that suggest a problem.
