suffer injury and illness due to prescription errors, or they can become
malnourished or dehydrated due to neglect. Bedsores are a common injury
for patients who are immobile or dependent on the nurses for mobility.
Inadequate supervision could result in wandering or elopement, which can
endanger the patient and could result in a fall, broken bones, and other
Patients can also suffer from physical emotional abuse such as beatings,
