Missouri Omnibus Nursing Home Act provides protection to residents and employees
The Missouri Omnibus Nursing Home Act was enacted as a response to public concerns about the adequacy of state laws, regulation and oversight of the nursing home industry.
It authorizes private civil lawsuits to compensate victims for improper or inadequate treatment of the elderly residents, including provisions for revocation of licenses, civil penalties for noncompliance with the Act’s standards, and required training of nursing home staff. However, don’t wait! The Act requires prompt prosecution and has a short applicable statute of limitations, meaning that if you don’t pursue the matter promptly, you can easily lose the right to sue under the Act.
