Springfield Nursing Home Abuse Lawyers
Southwestern Missouri Nursing Home Neglect Attorneys
Under Missouri law, permanent and short-term care residents of nursing homes are afforded the same civil rights we all enjoy. When an elderly or vulnerable person moves into a care facility, everyone associated with the management and operations of the facility are entrusted to do everything reasonably possible to protect those rights, while providing the highest levels of personal and medical care.
If a loved one in your family has suffered an injury while living as a permanent or temporary resident of a nursing home or convalescent care center, talk to an attorney on the nursing home injury team at Hall Ansley Rodgers & Sweeney right away. Since opening our doors in 1986, we have earned recognition as tenacious protectors of the civil rights of vulnerable victims of negligence on the part of medical professionals, including nursing home managers and staff.
What Constitutes Nursing Home Negligence?
If your loved one expresses concern about a particular staff person or other resident, or is uncomfortable about a particular policy, it may be an indication that there is malfeasance or negligence occurring. A repeated pattern of a certain type of injury may also indicate a disregard for special care required for the resident. Take time to listen to your loved one and observe their actions around staff and residents. Talk to managers about your concerns, then talk to an attorney who has experience investigating cases of Missouri nursing home neglect. There may be a pattern or record of violations that indicate negligence.
