Nursing homes throughout the state of Kansas promise to take care of the elderly and vulnerable adults they shelter. But we all know that care means more than just putting a roof over a person’s head. Kansas nursing home laws reflect that fact and specifically addresses what kind of care patients and residents need to receive, how much nursing care they should receive daily, and much more. In exchange for taking on this “duty to provide care,” the U.S. nursing home industry takes money from families, individuals, the federal Medicare and Medicaid programs, and others to the tune of billions and billions of dollars in profit each year.
Meanwhile, thousands of the people they’ve promised to protect and care for are abused, seriously injured or die unexpectedly under their watch every year.
That’s not care – that’s nursing home abuse and neglect – and its against the law.

My Mother Bonnie Neal entered an assisted living home. One day she went on a bus ride with the home and they ran over a bump in the road which made them hop in their seats. My mother was hurt. When she asked to go to the hospital they were not happy about it but they took her. She had a cracked sternum. The facility thought she was acting like a baby. I started to notice a change in mother. I asked the nurse at the facility what were they giving her and she replied ” just her normal meds” . I told them that I had just left to get her something to eat, and when I returned she could not even hold her head up. Something was wrong. If they had not given her any new drug then maybe something was wrong with her pipeline I had taken her to KU Medical Center for a angiogram. The facility sent paperwork . Her Neurosurgeon asked me why she was taking Latuda? I didn’t know what it was. He told me it was a psychotic drug. He told me her pipeline was fine and that she didn’t need Latuda. When I returned to her Facility and asked them if they were giving this to her they said no. Their own hand writing showed they had given it to her. ( I have the paper work they sent the Neurosurgeon, he gave it to me.) I took mother to her regular Doctor and asked him if he had prescribed this Latuda to her and he said no. I called her pharmacist . He also said no he had not filled that drug for her. I don’t know how long they had been giving her this drug but they almost killed her. She was in the Hospital for 5 days going thru withdraws. She then went to a skilled nursing home for 10 days that was the assisted living’s sister company. The skilled nursing facility started giving her another psychotic drug. My mother was put in a facility called Sanctuary Unit in Fredonia Kansas because of the psychotic nightmares she was having. I told them to get her off this drug and I was going to take her home. Mother was there about 30 days. Their was a lot more neglect going on also. They had taken a year of her life away from her. I lost my job dealing with all of this. She is doing great mentally now but she has a Parkinson shake about her because of this drug. She is still in a skilled nursing facility in Cherryvale Kansas. Is there a lawsuit here? Please let me know ?
