Physical Abuse in Tennessee Nursing Homes
When we place our loved ones in nursing homes, we expect their needs will be taken care of. All too often, residents suffer from malnutrition, bedsores and other forms of neglect. In some cases, elderly nursing home residents are the targets of outright abuse.
At Gatti, Keltner, Bienvenu & Montesi, PLC, we know the signs of nursing home abuse and are adept at finding evidence that supports our clients’ claims. Our lawyers have been doing this kind of work for people in Memphis and the surrounding areas of western Tennessee, eastern Arkansas and northern Mississippi for nearly 40 years. Today, we can put that experience to work for you.
Nursing Home Abuse Lawyer
It is almost unthinkable that a nursing home staff member would abuse a frail, elderly resident, but it happens. It is the responsibility of nursing homes to properly screen their employees to weed out potential threats. It is also important that they supervise staff members to protect residents from being left alone with dangerous individuals.
Nursing home abuse can also come from other residents. If roommates or other residents pose a physical threat to others, the nursing home staff needs to segregate those people from the general population. When nursing homes mix populations, your loved one could come in close contact with dangerous, unstable individuals.
When we take a nursing home abuse case, our first priority is to ensure that your loved one is protected from harm. Then we pursue compensation for the injuries, pain and suffering and other hardships your loved one faced. Also, our lawyers work to ensure that the perpetrators of such are held accountable and others are protected from these harmful practices in the future.
