Missouri nursing homes are closely regulated by state health agencies. Still, instances of nursing home abuse and neglect are on the rise. Elderly residents of these nursing homes are oftentimes defenseless and in desperate need of close care. Whether they are neglected on purpose or by accident, the results can be tragic and even deadly. If nursing home staff have acted negligently or improperly with your loved one, seeking legal help is key. You may get compensation that covers past harm and also provides for future care that is required. And more importantly, you may help to prevent continued abuse/neglect at the nursing home.
