Abstract: Mock juror perception of institutional elder neglect (EN-I) was investigated in a civil court context. Participants (N = 163) read a fictional EN-I civil trial summary in which the alleged victim filed a lawsuit against his/her nursing home for failure to provide adequate care. Participants either read a version in which the victim did or did not testify. Results showed that participants were more likely to rule for the victim if he/she testified, and rated the victim the most credible witness for his/her side. Results are discussed in terms of the importance of victim testimony in EN-I cases.

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.
