First, the presentation will define maltreatment of elderly people and discuss its signs. Next, it will articulate the responsibility of physicians to report maltreatment. It will then describe the processes and implications of reporting maltreatment in Nevada. This presentation will use hypothetical factual scenarios to demonstrate the application of these concepts.
