 Abstract
This study examined the specific phenomenon of elder abuse at elderly care hospitals. The relationship between the attitudes of the hospital and elder abuse was also examined. Methods: The participants were from 86 elderly care hospitals. Questionnaires contained structured questions on attitudes, practices and elder abuse-related items. The data were analyzed using descriptive statistics, and a t-test with SPSS program. Results: The following cases of specific abuse were noted: verbal aggression (39.5%), ignoring requests (24.4%), and threatening communication (22.1%). Furthermore, there were also cases of physical and sexual abuse. With these findings, this study suggested a few implications. Among them, it was stressed that a systematic investigation of elder abuse cases at hospitals be undertaken and the legal response should be regulated by law.
