Nursing Homes Are Required to Report When Your Loved One Becomes Sick
Every nursing home resident has the right to receive proper medical care. That includes correctly administering prescription medicines and treating medical problems as they arise. In addition, staff members are required to report concerns about a patient's medical condition or the onset of an illness. Failure to monitor and treat appropriately may be considered negligence.

If you have reason to believe your loved one is suffering neglect because of improper medical care or management policies, talk to an experienced personal injury attorney at Humphrey, Farrington & McClain. Our attorneys have extensive knowledge of the laws relating to government regulations and expected level of care and treatment in nursing homes, group homes and home health care settings.
Since we opened our doors in 1984 in Independence, Missouri, our trial lawyers have obtained more than $1 billion in settlements and verdicts in a full range of personal injury lawsuits, including nursing home negligence.
Many nursing homes are cited over and over again for violations of residents' rights. Nobody likes to file a lawsuit, but sometimes the only way to put a stop to the hurting and neglect is to apply to the courts for relief. We believe it is our responsibility as attorneys to protect the rights of the most vulnerable in our society.

- Failure to diagnose or treat an illness, prescription errors
