Kansas City Failure to Monitor Lawyers

Missouri Nursing Home Failure to Monitor Lawyer

The CDC reports that nursing home patients are twice as likely to be injured in a slip-and-fall accident as other elderly adults. Nursing home patients are also at risk of bed sores, falls from heights, injuries from exposure to adverse weather conditions and other serious or fatal injuries that are caused by nursing home negligence.

Since nursing home patients are often suffering from severe health problems, dementia and other difficult challenges, they are at a higher risk of danger. Nursing home facilities and staff must take stringent measures to reduce the risk of serious or fatal injuries to nursing home patients. Unfortunately, many nursing homes fail to maintain a sufficient number of staff, fail to properly train their staff and fail to enact necessary safety measures that could prevent many nursing home accidents.

Accidents Caused by a Failure to Properly Monitor Patients

Since many nursing home patients are at a higher risk of falls and other dangers, nursing home staff must carefully monitor patients. A failure to properly monitor patients can have serious consequences. Inadequate monitoring of patients may be a contributing to factor to:

  • Slip-and-fall accidents
  • Falls from heights
  • Injuries from exposure to adverse weather conditions
  • Malnutrition and dehydration
  • Nursing home abuse (physical, emotional and sexual abuse by staff members)

Our attorneys have successfully obtained compensation on behalf of clients in nursing home negligence claims. We have the experience and resources to carefully investigate the causes of nursing home accidents.

If your loved one has been injured in a nursing home accident, you may be told that age, illness or incapacity was the cause of the accident. In some cases accidents occur through no fault of a nursing home. However, nursing home facilities and staff are not likely to admit fault. Contact an experienced personal injury attorney at our firm who can review the facts of your case, advise you of your options and protect your rights.
