Abuse, neglect, abandonment, violence, and exploitation: an analysis of all elderly patients seen in one emergency department during a six-month period.

Abstract

Vulnerable individuals in society seem to be even more vulnerable as they age. Our data suggest that during the next decade members of our aging society may well tax our adult protective service systems to a greater degree than heretofore imagined. We have an opportunity to be proactive in this regard.
