Independence MO Nursing Home Ratings GraphMoving a loved one into a nursing facility is never an easy choice when families are no longer able to provide their loved ones the care they require.

Many nursing homes cut corners to stay in business by operating with minimal staff, improperly trained nurses, or hiring employees who are not qualified to provide acceptable standards of care. Sometimes, the residents who are being treated poorly are too afraid to speak up in fear of retaliation or are incapable of communicating at all due to their health challenges.

The number of cases involving abuse and neglect in nursing facilities is on the rise in Jackson County. Of the more than 685,000 residents countywide, approximately 92,000 are senior citizens. This number has risen significantly in the last five years. However, the number of nursing homes throughout the community has remained stable. This need places an increased demand on a limited number of beds available for senior citizens who require the highest level of care. Overcrowded conditions usually result in poor standards and cases of abuse that lead to preventable injuries and death.

The Warning Signs of Nursing Home Neglect and Abuse

Many families are unaware of the obvious and not so visible warning signs of abuse and neglect occurring in nursing facilities. Unfortunately, many residents suffer undue pain, abandonment, intimidation or premature death. The signs include:

  • Restraint – Nursing home residents can become victims of physical or chemical restraint. Many are restrained without authorization as a convenience of the nursing staff or chemical restraints and over-medication to control resident behavior.
  • Staff Inattention – Failing to respond to a resident’s needs timely is a serious issue.
  • Falls – Many falling accidents are the result of a lack of supervision.
  • Pressure Sores – Every facility-acquired pressure sore (bedsores; pressure ulcers; decubitus ulcer) is preventable. Without early detection, a beginning bedsore can quickly degrade to a life-threatening condition.
  • Bruises – Bruising can be the first indicator of neglect or abuse.
  • Weight Loss – Any unexplained weight loss could be a warning sign of mistreatment.

The warning signs listed above are not in any order. Each type of neglect, mistreatment, and abuse can be equally harmful. Family members must take immediate action if suspicious that their loved one was mistreated.

★★★★★
Jonathan did a great job helping my family navigate through a lengthy lawsuit involving my grandmother's death in a nursing home. Through every step of the case, Jonathan kept my family informed of the progression of the case. Although our case eventually settled at a mediation, I really was impressed at how well prepared Jonathan was to take the case to trial. Lisa
★★★★★
After I read Jonathan’s Nursing Home Blog, I decided to hire him to look into my wife’s treatment at a local nursing home. Jonathan did a great job explaining the process and the laws that apply to nursing homes. I immediately felt at ease and was glad to have him on my side. Though the lawsuit process was at times frustrating, Jonathan reassured me, particularly at my deposition. I really felt like Jonathan cared about my wife’s best interests, and I think that came across to the lawyers for the nursing home. Eric
