Causes of Neglect and/or Abuse

Residential treatment centers often have abusive or neglectful conditions for a variety of reasons.

  • The staff is improperly trained to handle patients.
  • The center has a shortage of staff.
  • The center hires staff that does not have the qualifications to care for patients.
  • The center did little or no background checks on their employees before hiring them.
  • There is overcrowding in the RTC.

All of these causes for neglect and abuse occur due to negligence on the part of the RTC.

Who is Liable for Neglect and Abuse?

Although the residential treatment center staff may have contributed to neglect and abuse, liability is often assigned to the center or company that owns the center. These entities are expected to uphold a duty of care to any admitted patients – including ensuring they have the adequate staff necessary to properly take care of them.

By not exercising this due diligence, the residential treatment center and its owners may be fully liable for any actions their staff incurs on patients.
