There are different types of elderly abuse, the most common form of it is financial exploitation, with physical abuse, neglect and emotional, and most of the time is a family member the perpetrator, and in many cases the elders are afraid to report it, that is why we, the nurses play an important role in detecting and reporting this criminal act, being this is an excellent article for us to review and apply it in our daily basis practice.Thanks.
