Physical abuse is the intentional infliction of injuries through actions such as punching, shoving, slapping, pinching, etc. This type of abuse can lead to unexplained cuts, bruises, fractures, dislocations, and head injuries. Using unnecessary physical restraint also constitutes physical abuse.
This type of abuse involves the verbal and non-verbal infliction of psychological trauma through abandonment, threats, humiliation, bullying and other actions. This can lead to unexplained changes in the victim’s mental health, including depression, anxiety, and fearfulness.
This type of abuse involves the fraudulent use of the victim’s financial assets, such as stealing jewelry or cash, forging checks, and opening new credit accounts with the victim’s identity. It also involves fraudulent billing for services not rendered and overbilling.
Sexual abuse is non-consensual sexual contact or activity. Victims may experience psychological trauma and physical symptoms such as pelvic pain and bruising, recurring urinary tract infections, and STDs.
This involves the failure (intentional or unintentional) to provide necessary medical treatment, missing medications, and administering the wrong medication or incorrect dosage.
