Institutional elder neglect in civil court: Perceptions of video recorded victim testimony

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Perception of institutional elder neglect (IEN) in civil court was investigated. Mock jurors (N=148) read a fictional IEN civil trial summary in which an alleged elderly victim filed a lawsuit against her nursing home but died prior to trial. Participants read a version that presented either the victim’s previously videotaped testimony, her nursing home floor-mate’s testimony, or no witness testimony. Results indicated that victim testimony indirectly affected ruling, and more general contact with elders led to ruling for the plaintiff and having pro-victim ratings. We discuss the impact of victim testimony and juror attitudes towards the elderly in IEN cases.
