Nursing Home Negligence, Neglect, & Abuse

Open sores. Unexplained bruises or fractures. Loss of weight or appetite. Sudden sadness, silence, or personality change. There may be valid explanations for these symptoms relating to age or disease, or these may be signs of poor care or abuse. At Dempsey & Kingsland, we investigate all types of nursing home negligence resulting in physical injury, death, or other compensable harm.

We can help you if your loved one was affected by:

  • Advanced stage bedsores (pressure ulcers)
  • Malnutrition and dehydration
  • Undiagnosed medical conditions
  • Medication errors or overmedication
  • Falls from bed
  • Falls from walking without assistance
  • Excessive restraint or physical abuse
  • Emotional abuse and punishment
  • Wandering off the premises
  • Assault/sexual assault by staff, visitors, or residents

Some types of elder neglect, such as falls, may go unreported by nursing home staff. Nursing home negligence often stems from understaffing, unqualified staff, poor medical supervision, and sloppy administration. Our experienced nursing home negligence lawyers in Kansas City secure medical records, check the criminal backgrounds of employees and managers, and research health code violations and similar claims of abuse or neglect.
