Rape Of Cerebal Palsy Patient Reported In St. Louis Nursing Home

Rape Of Cerebal Palsy PatientA janitor at the Normandy Nursing Center, a St. Louis, Missouri nursing home, was arrested and charged with raping a resident at the facility.  The victim is a 36-year-old woman suffering from Cerebal Palsy and seizure disorder.  The alleged incident took place on December 21st when the janitor attacked the woman in a stairwell and raped her.  The alleged perpetrator is being held in the St. Louis County Jail on $200,000 cash only bond.  According to the administrator at Normandy Nursing Center, the alleged perpetrator has worked at the facility for a year and a half and passed a background check.

Normandy Nursing Center received 2 out of 5 starts as a total rating for the facility according to Medicare’s Nursing Home Compare website.  The for-profit facility is capable for 116 residents.  When it comes to staffing levels at the facility, Normandy rated poorly receiving just 1 out of 5 stars.  Normandy’s staffing levels were significantly below the staffing levels for both national and Missouri nursing home averages.  Dare I say that had Normandy provided more staff to look after residents, this nursing home rape may have been prevented?

Client Reviews

  • Having worked in the medical field, I appreciated the way that Mr. Rosenfeld and his staff approached my family’s situation. The combination of medical knowledge and legal expertise was indeed the winning combination for our case.
    ★★★★★
  • While nothing can change the way our mother was treated at a nursing facility, I do feel a sense of vindication that the facility was forced to pay for their treatment. I am certain that they would never have done had my attorneys not held their feet to the fire.
    ★★★★★
  • I was very nervous about initiating a claim against my mother’s nursing facility, but Rosenfeld Injury Lawyers took care of everything from getting the medical records to going to court. I felt like I had real advocates on my side. That meant a lot to me.
    ★★★★★
  • After a horrific episode at a nursing home, my sister and I spoke to a number of law firms. No one took the time to answer our questions and explain the legal process like Mr. Rosenfeld. He did a tremendous job on our case and I can see why he’s earned the praise he has from clients and peers.
    ★★★★★
  • I liked the fact that I could call the office and ask questions about the legal process at anytime. I could tell that my case was in good hands. I think that this was reflected in my father’s settlement was more than I anticipated the case ever being worth.
