ADVOCATING FOR THE VICTIMS OF NURSING HOME ABUSE AND NEGLECT

Many Missouri residents entrust the care of their elderly family members to nursing homes, hoping to provide them with a pleasant and attentive home toward the end of their golden years. Unfortunately, the nursing home industry is a business, which means profit is sometimes prioritized over the well-being of residents. This has made nursing home abuse and neglect all too common.

If you or someone you love has been the victim of abuse or neglect while under the care of a nursing home, you may have the right to file suit against that nursing home. At DiPasquale Moore, we know the wounds left by elder abuse cannot be healed with money, but compensation can help put you in the right position to move forward. What’s more, a successful lawsuit can protect other families from falling prey to the same nursing home.

WHAT IS NURSING HOME ABUSE?

Nursing home abuse can take many forms, all of which can be difficult to spot when you do not know the warning signs. It is crucial to look out for any signs of abuse, as victims often stay silent due to a fear of retaliation or feelings of shame.

The five main forms of elder abuse and their warning signs are:

  • Emotional/verbal abuse
    • Depression
    • Mood swings
    • Unexplained behavioral changes
    • Withdrawal from social activities (i.e. isolation)
  • Physical abuse
    • Burn marks
    • Bruises and welts
    • Unexplained changes in behavior
    • Unexplained injuries, particularly in hard-to-spot locations like the upper arm
  • Sexual abuse
    • Memory loss
    • Unexplained STDs
    • Stained or torn underwear
    • Difficulty sitting or moving
    • Suddenly fearful of being touched
    • Injuries, particularly near the hip, thigh, or genital area
  • Neglect
    • Pressure ulcers/bedsores
    • Malnutrition or dehydration
    • Rapid weight loss or weight gain
    • Unsanitary living conditions
    • Poor personal hygiene
    • Missed doses of medication
  • Financial abuse
    • Missing funds
    • New lines of credits
    • Unusual ATM withdrawals
    • Unexplained changes to wills, powers of attorney, property titles, life insurance policies, etc.

VICTIMS OF ELDER ABUSE HAVE RIGHTS

No one should be subjected to elder abuse. But if it does occur at a nursing home, the state grants the victim the right to sue for damages. Alternatively, a surviving loved one or personal representative may take action on behalf of the victim.

We at DiPasquale Moore are equipped to help you throughout the legal process. We will investigate your case to determine whether nursing home abuse has occurred; if it has, we will work tirelessly to win you justice and closure. A successful case may also result in compensation for medical expenses, pain and suffering, funeral and burial expenses, loss of quality of life, loss of care, guidance, and companionship, and/or other damages.
