According to Pickering, Ridenour, Salaysay, Reyes-Gastelum, & Pierce (2017), instrument development and clinical assessment of abuse and neglect of the elderly is complicated by many states and countries having their legal definitions of what are termed as abuse or neglect. The article also mentions the controversy of universal screening for elder abuse and neglect in geriatrics. The article makes a recommendation of using the QualCare Scale as a tool useful for detecting clinically significant elder abuse and neglect among the elderly patients in the residential areas.
According to Alon & Berg-Warman (2014), the report focuses on discussing the important interventions which can be useful in controlling cases of the aged abuse and neglect in residential areas. The article explains a program which treated abused and neglected individuals and the results showed that the people who went through the program improved and there was a general drop in ill-treatment and neglect cases. The three types of intervention mentioned included legal intervention, provision of supportive services and individual counseling.
Ploeg, Lohfeld, & Walsh (2013) focus on discussing the evidence and perspectives of elderly abuse and lapse in marginalized groups in Canada such as lesbians, immigrants, refugees and Aboriginal individuals. The study showed that such marginalized groups suffered traditional forms of abuse as well as less frequently types of abuse which are not experienced by other older adults. The traditional forms of abuse include neglect, financial and economic abuse, sexual harassment, physical abuse and psychological torture. Less frequent types of abuse included correctly and biased abuse as well as disrespect from government officials.
According to Taylor, Killick, O’Brien, Begley, & Carter-Anand (2014), the one kind of abuse the aging people encounter is the lack of respect whereby they see other divisions of the society as disrespecting them. The increased vulnerability of the elderly members of the community is associated with the fact that need help and support at nearly all times. The article also points out that the elderly also experience emotional abusiveness even from the professionals who take care of them. The article recommends that the prevention of abuse and neglect requires a wide-ranging approach which incorporates helping the elderly regain respect from the people they deal with.
Friedman, Avila, Shah, Tanouye, & Joseph (2013) focuses their report on a study conveyed to ascertain whether practitioners taking care of the aged reported cases relating to abuse and neglect to Adult Protective Services. The study shows that most cases in the sector go unreported thus making elderly victims to suffer resulting to a high risk of death during the first year of hospitalization. The article suggests that there is a need for improvement in identification, reporting, and intervention to prevent victims from neglect and abuse.
Hyde et al., (2014) concentrates on the description and analysis of five organizational elements which are associated with elder mistreatment, neglect, and abuse. The five elements include management and procedures, infrastructure, recruitment, resident population features, and culture. The article also explains the macro-structural factors which affect care quality as delivered to the elderly patients. The report recommends a solution to the problem since even if organizations with issues are closed down, the problem recurs elsewhere.
Gutman & Yon, (2014) explains the different types of abuse which older adults are most likely to suffer in case of disasters. Some of the most common abuses included financial, neglect and physical abuse. Financial abuse refers to the theft which occurs in shelters after disasters and also contractors who even though already paid do not finish the work. Neglect involves complete abandonment by government and well-wishers while physical abuse occurs mostly in residential and care homes. The article recommends that further research is still needed to get more information regarding the type of challenges that older adults go through during disasters.
According to Danesh (2015), the definition of elderly mistreatment or abuse by the National Research Council of the National Academics is that it is intentional or unintentional harm perpetrated by the caregiver or anybody in a trusting relationship with the elderly person. The article points out that dermatologists are in a better position of realizing cases of elderly abuse by distinguishing lesions which are caused by diseases and those caused by abuse. The article also recommends that caregivers such as dermatologists should ensure that the elderly are safe from any form of abuse whether from inside or outside.
