The Impact of Ageism on Perceptions of Testimony in an Institutional Elder Neglect Civil Trial

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



Abstract:

Perception of institutional elder neglect (IEN) in civil court was investigated. Community members (N=134) read a fictional IEN civil trial summary in which an elderly female victim filed a lawsuit against her nursing home. Participants read a version in which the victim testified, or she was dead and the victim’s recorded deposition was presented, the victim’s niece testified, or no testimony was provided. Results indicated that live victim testimony and participants’ ageist attitudes indirectly affected ruling through pro-victim and defendant credibility ratings, respectively. We discuss the impact of victim testimony and juror attitudes towards the elderly in IEN cases.
