Formulation of the results

The strategies for detecting elderly abuse in nursing homes differ with the data that researchers aim to collect. For instance, this social aspect can be determined using daily cases, annual cases, and how it affect different genders. This study formulates the results from different databases such as EBSChhost, by selecting the MEDLINE complete and CINAHL complete. The visuals below reflects the results of elderly abuse in nursing homes between 2015 and 2020. The objective of this formulation is represented in the table below:

The results formulated in this study indicate that elderly abuse is one critical aspect that caregivers should address in nursing homes. Despite reduction in the proportion of the population experiencing elderly abuse, there is a need for all participants to devise strategies that will ensure that the elderly in nursing homes live harmoniously and avoid the possible elderly abuses from various victims. Both male and female elders in nursing homes faced a similar proportion of abuse between 2015 and 2020.
