Nearly 650,000 residents live within the Nashville city limits, where more than 80,000 are senior citizens. The aging population increases significantly when accounting for all retirees residing throughout Davidson County. The number of elders in the community has risen substantially over the last few decades as many individuals in the baby boomer generation have chosen to make Nashville the ideal place to live during their retirement years.

Unfortunately, the growing population of seniors has placed a significant burden on nursing homes, assisted living centers, and rehabilitation facilities throughout the county. As a result, many nursing homes are now overcrowded and unable to meet the needs and demands of all their residents. In addition to the crowded conditions, many facilities are understaffed by overworked doctors, nurses, nurse aides, and employees who often become frustrated in their workplace to the detriment of their patients.

Nashville Nursing Home Resident Health Concerns

Even though nursing facilities and assisted-living homes are designed to provide a high level of care to the residents, the reality is often much different. Too many nursing and staff members are abusive to the residents under their supervision in various ways. Some cases of mistreatment are apparent where the resident suffers broken bones through a deliberate act or unsupervised fall. Other injuries are not visible where the victim is neglected due to the facility’s conditions, minimal staffing, or the uncaring nature of one or more nurses, doctors, or employees at the facility.

For years, our Nashville elder abuse network of attorneys has guided family members through the complex legal system when their loved one becomes a victim of mistreatment. Also, we routinely evaluate and assess publicly available information from federal and state databases, including Medicare.gov. This national agency rates every nursing facility across the nation. Our Davidson County nursing home neglect lawyers review nursing home opened investigations, filed complaints, safety hazards, state surveys, and health violations involving nursing facilities throughout Tennessee.

Getting the Justice Your Loved One Deserves

Abuse and neglect against the elderly take many forms. In many cases, family members want vindication to hold those legally accountable for the harm they’ve caused a vulnerable loved one who could not stand up for themselves.

Most cases of mistreatment against the elderly involve physical assault, sexual attacks, emotional trauma, and financial exploitation. Unfortunately, many instances of abuse go unreported for various reasons. In some cases, the resident can no longer communicate what is going on due to their medical or mental condition. Other times, the resident is too scared to speak out in fear of retaliation or reprisal by the perpetrator.

Family members are often unaware of the ten most common indicators that a loved one is being abused or neglected. These include:

  • Unexplained bruising
  • Medication errors including not following physician’s orders
  • Hazardous conditions and a lack of supervision that leads to a fall with injuries
  • Unexpected weight loss
  • The staff refused to allow the resident access to normal activities or visitors
  • Sudden change in behaviors including biting, rocking or sucking
  • Facility-acquired bedsores that degrade due to a lack of proper treatment
  • Financial exploitation through theft of the resident’s personal belongings or funds
  • Starvation and dehydration
  • Unnecessary sedation or improper restraint using chemicals or physical devices including belts without authorization

Tragically, many nursing home residents die from abuse and neglect every year. If your loved one was harmed, injured, or has passed while under the care of nursing professionals, it is essential to seek the legal representation of our compassionate personal injury attorneys today.

Holding medical doctors and nursing staff legally accountable not only protects the rights and dignity of the resident that was harmed; but, shields all future residents who might not be aware of the unacceptable actions and level of care provided by the facility. Having an attorney on your side is typically the best solution to ensure that your loved one receives the financial compensation they deserve.

★★★★★
Jonathan did a great job helping my family navigate through a lengthy lawsuit involving my grandmother's death in a nursing home. Through every step of the case, Jonathan kept my family informed of the progression of the case. Although our case eventually settled at a mediation, I really was impressed at how well prepared Jonathan was to take the case to trial. Lisa

After I read Jonathan’s Nursing Home Blog, I decided to hire him to look into my wife’s treatment at a local nursing home. Jonathan did a great job explaining the process and the laws that apply to nursing homes. I immediately felt at ease and was glad to have him on my side. Though the lawsuit process was at times frustrating, Jonathan reassured me, particularly at my deposition. I really felt like Jonathan cared about my wife’s best interests, and I think that came across to the lawyers for the nursing home. Eric
