2.6 The Importance of Identifying Signs of Neglect and Abuse

Healthcare professionals must understand various signs of abuse and neglect so immediate care can be provided to vulnerable adults.

Most of the time, healthcare settings are the only external places that vulnerable adults can reach, especially in cases of severe abuse.

Recognizing the signs of abuse and being able to provide support to vulnerable adults can be a matter of life and death. Getting the right organizations involved can provide the victims with resources and safety that they might not get a chance to get once they are out of the healthcare system or vicinity.
