Elder Abuse in Missouri
Elder abuse is a serious criminal offense in the state of Missouri, but it hasn’t stopped thousands of wrongdoers from abusing and neglecting elderly victims. According to the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services (DHSS), reports of elder abuse, neglect, and financial exploitation have increased dramatically in just a few years. The Missouri Revised Statutes defines abuse and neglect as follows:
- Elder Abuse: Infliction of physical, emotional, and / or sexual harm, including financial exploitation.
- Neglect: The failure to provide services to eligible adults by any person or entity with a legal duty to do so, including nurses and other health care providers.
Abuse and neglect can take many different forms and can severely impact an older adult’s quality of life. Victims in fragile states of health can suffer serious physical injuries or illnesses, as well as significant pain, suffering, and emotional distress. In any form and in any situation, nursing home abuse and neglect should never be tolerated.
