Placing a loved one in a nursing home is not always an easy decision for individuals in Missouri to make. While it is often an appropriate step to take because it is too difficult to care for a loved one that can no longer care for him or herself, it is challenging to entrust a facility to provide the proper care and safe environment necessary. When a nursing home or nursing home staff fails to meet their requirements, this could be deemed as negligence. Nursing home negligence is a serious matter, and could result in an elderly loved one suffer serious harms or even death.
