Nursing Home Malnutrition & Dehydration Attorneys in Kansas City

Serving Clients in Missouri & Kansas

Elderly patients in nursing homes often have difficulty eating, chewing, and swallowing. Their caregivers may discourage them from drinking fluids because of concerns about incontinence. The consequences can be malnutrition and dehydration if nursing homes do not follow approved protocols for ensuring that patients in their care receive adequate nutrition and hydration.

At Dempsey & Kingsland, P.C., our nursing home malnutrition attorneys in Kansas City assist clients who suffered malnutrition or dehydration in nursing homes. Moreover, because these conditions are often fatal when they go unnoticed, we file wrongful death lawsuits for families whose loved ones died because nursing homes failed to provide adequate nourishment.

Call (816) 484-3776 for a no-cost consultation. We look forward to hearing your story.

Evaluation of Your Case by a Registered Nurse

Our law firm has the experience and knowledge to handle these types of cases successfully. Our nurse consultant is able to examine a case of nursing home malnutrition or dehydration and quickly determine whether the staff violated accepted standards of care. For example, patients unable to chew should be given liquid or ground-up nourishment. Fluid intake and output should be monitored to ensure adequate hydration. Our nurse evaluates the patient’s situation and determines whether the nursing home staff took actions such as these to ensure adequate nutrition and hydration.

Ensuring adequate food and liquid intake is not difficult; it merely requires the nursing home staff to pay attention and respond appropriately. If we determine that the nursing home failed to take the proper steps, our lawyers can file a claim seeking compensation for the injury or death caused by the nursing home’s negligence. We have successfully handled many nursing home neglect cases, helping injured clients and their families obtain justice.
