Types of elder abuse

When Tennessee residents think about elder abuse, they may only think about a lack of care or mistreatment from nursing staff. However, there are actually different types of behavior that can be considered elder abuse. Further, elder abuse can be committed by anyone who has a special relationship with the elderly person, such as a spouse, family member or hired caretaker.

Radiologists largely untrained to spot elder abuse

According to a study, very few radiologists in Tennessee and around the country are trained to identify elder abuse even though most are trained in spotting child abuse. There are several reasons that spotting the abuse of elderly people is more difficult, and a majority of radiologists who participated in the study said that they would like more training about the problem.
