Families turn to nursing homes and assisted living facilities to give the elderly the care and attention they need. Such patients deserve the best care, but often this is not the case. Unfortunately, in some facilities elders are being abused and neglected. Nursing home abuse cases arise when residents in nursing homes or in long-term care facilities suffer physical and/or psychiatric harm because of negligent or intentional acts of their caregivers. Such as in medical malpractice cases, nursing homes can be held liable for abuse based on provisions of inadequate care and negligence in screening their employees, inadequate supervision and improper maintenance of the premises. In those instances it is important to turn to a St. Louis nursing home abuse lawyer or a Missouri medical neglect attorney.
