St. Louis Nursing Home Neglect Attorney
Have you or a family member been affected by nursing home neglect?
It is an unfortunate fact that in this day and age, there is rarely a state in the U.S. that possesses nursing home neglect and abuse statistics that are declining. If anything, these statistics are increasing, as evidenced by the fact that according to Gannet News Service, only 300 out of the nation's 16,000 nursing homes did not show up on a list of abuse and neglect violators. Nursing home neglect can occur in a variety ways, all to the extreme detriment of the victim. Some common signs and symptoms of neglect include:
- Bed or pressure sores
- Loss of weight
- Chapped lips
In many instances, nursing homes are understaffed, and the staff that is employed is overworked, poorly trained, or even blatantly unethical. Often, staff members will be hired without any kind of criminal background check beforehand. This creates conditions in the nursing home that are very conducive to the occurrence of neglect and injury to the residents. If you or a loved one has been victimized by neglect in a nursing home, then it is imperative you contact a St. Louis personal injury lawyer right away. We can assist you in your case by establishing liability and representing you in court.
