St. Louis nursing home accused of sexual, physical, and verbal abuse

nursing home.jpgA St. Louis Missouri nursing home has been investigated by the Missouri Department of Health and Human Services for serious allegations of nursing home abuse and neglect, including verbal, sexual, and physical abuse towards its elderly residents, which led to serious personal injuries. K.F. Jammer Manor, West, in University City, Missouri, had been investigated since April 2010 for these allegations, and a copy of the report can be found here.

K.F. Jammer Manor, West, housed elderly veterans. The report states that one resident made allegations of rape twice, but 911 was not called nor were the police notified. This same resident stated she was having a sexual relationship with a housekeeper, and that housekeeper was then just moved to another facility. There are also allegations that a manager received oral sex from a resident in exchange for money. There are also reports of residents physically fighting with each other. At least two residents were harassed by a third resident, who called the other two residents racial names, and spit on them and threw water on them.

Nursing home abuse and neglect such as that alleged against K.F. Jammer Manor, West, is intolerable and egregious. Persons in need of nursing care facilities should be treated with the dignity and respect that they deserve, and not be abused or have their needs ignored.
