We Help You Combat and Recover From Nursing Home Negligence and Abuse
You should be able to expect top-quality care in a nursing home. Your loved one deserves to be treated with dignity and respect by nurses, doctors, staff and other residents. Unfortunately, neglect and abuse occur in nursing homes and assisted living facilities across Missouri and Kansas.
When nursing home abuse or neglect occur, you may be able to pursue legal remedies that can put a stop to the harmful behavior and actions while also holding the facility accountable for negligence, which may include negligent hiring, staffing, maintenance, resident care or security.
Nursing home neglect and abuse are not always easily recognizable and your loved one may not be able to express the fact that they have experienced abuse or negligent care. In many cases, elderly and disabled individuals are unable to communicate effectively or they have been intimidated by nursing home staff.
Signs of Nursing Home Neglect and Abuse
- Malnutrition or dehydration
- Bed sores
- Bruises or unusual soreness
- Broken bones
Examples of injuries caused by nursing home neglect include bed sores, broken bones, medication error complications, severe depression, emotional trauma, paralysis and more. Physical and sexual abuse perpetrated by irresponsible staff and other nursing home residents are also all too common occurrences.
In these cases, experienced personal injury attorneys can hold nursing homes accountable for negligent hiring and staffing practices and negligent security measures. We may also be able to hold the nursing home accountable if your loved one is able to wander off and happens to injure themselves while unsupervised, even if the injury occurs off the grounds of the facility.
