Nursing Home Abuse & Neglect

Nursing Home Abuse & Neglect

Elders in declining health often need more care than their loved ones can provide.

It is never easy for seniors or their families to conclude that a nursing facility is the best option.

But once that decision is made, the elder resident and the family should be able to expect professionalism, vigilance and compassion from the facility and its employees. Too often, residents suffer pain and indignity because of nursing home neglect, abuse and injury. That’s why McShane & Brady has fought on the side of elders and their loved ones as nursing home neglect lawyers in Kansas City.

While abuse is a willfully harmful act, neglect occurs when a caregiver fails to fulfill their obligations for the elder’s care.

Neglect can be intentional or unintentional.

When the nursing home staff denies the resident’s needs regarding shelter, food, clothing, hygiene or medical care, it could be considered neglect.

5,000,000

people are affected by elder abuse every single year

5%-15%

of self-reported elder abuses are physical or cause by neglect

60%

are verbal, According to the National Center for Victims of Crime

What should you look out for?

 

When you visit your loved ones in a nursing home, be on the lookout for:

  • Bedsores and pressure ulcers
  • Dehydration
  • Infections
  • Malnutrition
  • Unsanitary conditions
  • Rapid change in weight

Neglect can also lead to falls or medication errors — avoidable accidents that should be taken seriously. Our lawyers thoroughly investigate evidence of nursing home neglect, helping you build a case to protect your loved one from harm.

Z.W.

Personal Injury

My wife was injured in a terrible car accident. We hired an attorney that we believed would look out for our best interest. It turns out he was looking out for himself and not for us by taking our settlement and running away. We lost faith in dealing with attorneys that day, making a bad situation even tougher to deal with. After some thought, we decided to try another attorney to see if we could get the help we needed. We were referred to McShane & Brady. Maureen and Lucy restored our confidence and trust. They fought hard for us and have led the charge.
