As is the case in the clear majority of other states, the legal limit in Missouri, is 0.08 percent blood alcohol content (BAC). This is a measure of how much alcohol is in one's system and, thus, how much one has had to drink over the last several hours. Kansas City residents should know by now that trying to drive with 0.08 or greater BAC is extremely dangerous behavior and can lead to a serious auto accident.
A previous post on this blog talked about what families in the Kansas City area can do if their loved one in a nursing home or other assisted living facility, or even in an in-home care program, winds up getting neglected or abused. The upshot was that, in addition to reporting the misconduct to regulators, families can consider filing a personal injury case against those responsible.
Many families in the Kansas City area, on both sides of the Missouri River, must trust their loved ones to the care of a nursing home, and assisted living facility or to some other individual or organization that provides professional medical and personal care.
