Patient Abuse & Neglect
The Indiana Attorney General's Patient Abuse and Neglect Program was created to protect vulnerable Hoosiers - patients in nursing homes, homes for the disabled, assisted living residences, homes for the mentally ill and other residential care facilities. These patients are often defenseless against the quiet, yet shocking crimes of abuse and neglect. Abused or neglected patients are almost always completely dependent on their assailants. They are usually unable or afraid to complain. The Attorney General has a select staff whose sole duty is investigating patient abuse and neglect.
