Nursing Home Abuse & Neglect

Choosing to place a loved one in a senior care facility or nursing home is an emotionally and financially difficult decision for many Tennessee families.  After the care and thought that goes into selecting a facility, and the accompanying financial burden of paying for such care, it is devasting to learn that your loved one has faced neglect or abuse at the hands of the facility they were entrusted. 

 

Our attorneys have first-hand experience with nursing home abuse and neglect lawsuits and the various ways that poorly operated and inadequately funded facilities put profits over our seniors.  Whether you suspect that something may be wrong or you have direct evidence of mistreatment, our experienced attorneys can help you and your loved one by advocating for their rights, holding facilities accountable for the quality of their care, and seeking appropriate compensation.  Common signs of senior abuse and neglect include:

 

  • Development of bedsores due to lack of movement

  • Dehydration and rapid weight loss from lack of proper nutrition and care

  • Falls and injuries due to nursing home transitions and movements

  • Unexplained urinary infections or repeated hospitalizations for infections or sepsis

  • Elopement and repeated attempts to leave the facility without supervision

  • Prescription mistakes and problems with medication

  • Evidence of financial exploitation, including missing money

  • Inappropriate contact of any kind with patients
