Module 5: Legal and Ethical Concerns in Geriatric Care Elder mistreatment is classified into several categories: neglect, financial exploitation, emotional, physical, or sexual abuse, self-neglect (unable to care for oneself), and violation of personal rights. Gerontological nurses should be educated in the prevention, detection, and treatment of elder abuse and need to be aware of the reporting laws for their state. Elder abuse occurs across many socioeconomic groups and settings. Patients diagnosed with dementia are often marginalized and stripped of their dignity.
