Any idea on how to fix this handle?

Alright folks....hope I'm not hogging too much of the forum, but I have got a mountain ahead to climb.
Curious as to how to fix this door? There's no entrance latch/handle. It was apparently torn out & the PO used a switchblade and/or screwdriver to open it. The good news is that at least the mechanism works...but how do I proceed?
Any suggestions are hugely appreciated!

What you need would be called an euchen plate. Or lamminate a piece of aluiminum sheet stock on it. Then replace the door knob.

I downloaded them, rotated them, and re-posted them. Piece of cake.

Okay, can anyone help me with instructions on how to install a euchen plate? I think I've found the handle I need.

I think you mean escutcheon plate. This is just a piece of aluminum to patch the hole and then re-jig for the new hardware. So, your new hardware will dictate how you proceed with the escutcheon.

Thanks. I had googled that word from the post--couldn't find it. Figured it was misspelled

escutcheon is the proper term. You know that plate around your shower control valve,and the valve for your toilet at the wall...? Those are escutcheons.
