Nursing Home Mistreatment
The decision to put a loved one in a nursing home is no easy decision. Life care issues are among the toughest decisions that people have to make. A person would like to think that the people that run and work at these nursing home facilities understand this. They, after all, must have family themselves. Further, these people have decided to own or work at one of these facilities. Consequently, it is shocking when news of elder abuse is heard about.
If you have had to put a loved one into a nursing home, hopefully that nursing home has taken good care of them. If not, there may be legal remedies available in addition to you having a right to make a report with the Missouri Department of Health & Senior Services.
Recognize these signs of elder abuse among others:
Sudden weight loss;
Non-responsive loved one;
Dirty or filthy bed sheets or clothing;
Listen to what your loved one is telling you. Are they afraid? Are they in pain?
Your loved one has rights. You should contact an attorney about any nursing home abuse, assault, or neglect. You should contact Rocky Cannon, Attorney at Law, at 816-353-0009.
Your choice of a lawyer or law firm is an important decision and should not be based solely on advertisements. Nursing home cases are usually referred out to more experienced attorneys in these types of cases to insure the best possible representation for the client.
