St. Louis Nursing Home Abuse Attorney
Has a loved one suffered from nursing home abuse?
Selecting a nursing home for an elderly or disabled family member can be a difficult. We research various facilities and recommendations by doctors, hospital staffs, and friends. We trust the nursing home we have chosen will provide excellent care for all patients. Good nutrition and care is expected. However, in time we may notice a change in our family member. Weight loss, bed sores, lack of interest, groggy from too much medication and poor personal hygiene are signs of nursing home abuse. If your family is facing this situation, a St. Louis personal injury attorney can be of help to you.
In 1987, Congress enacted the "Federal Nursing Home Reform Act," but regardless of the legislation created to protected the elderly, it is the family ultimately that oversees the care of a loved one. We trust the nursing home to provide good nutrition, hydration, good personal hygiene, and respect. A qualified and sufficient number of the nursing staff is of the utmost importance, however, many times there is not enough staff and that is at the core of negligence. We can begin to see a decline in our loved one and that is heartbreaking. Meeting with the staff of a nursing home is the first step in trying to resolve the situatiom, although, all too often this makes little impact of the care of the patient.
