Columbia Nursing Homes
Columbia is known as the "Antebellum Homes Capital of Tennessee", because it has the most pre-Civil War homes than any other county in Tennessee. Maury County was founded in 1807 and was rich with agricultural wealth during that time. Now, it is the home of Columbia State Community College which was founded in 1966. The Higgins Firm knows that the people of Columbia care about the safety and well-being of their elderly loved ones. This is why we work hard to provide the best legal services to these residents. If you suspect your loved one has been the victim of nursing home abuse we will do all we can to make sure you receive the compensation you may be entitled to.Nursing Homes in Columbia and Maury County

We will review your case and help address any concerns you may have.
When you have to make the decision to place someone you love into one of these local nursing homes or a different one, it is important that you visit each home first. This will allow you to speak with the staff about their policies and procedures and it will also allow you time to notice what kind of care the other residents are receiving and if they seem to be well cared for or if they seem alone and neglected. You should also ask the nursing home about the number of workers they have, when and where residents eat, who takes care of handed out medicine to the residents, and what their policies are for emergencies. This will help you get a good sense about the nursing home and if it is the right one for the person you care about.
After you decide on a nursing home, it is recommended that you follow up by seeing your loved one frequently and at a different times of the day. You should speak with your loved one if possible and be aware of any signs of abuse or neglect such as but not limited to:
- pressure sores
- cleanliness of your loved one and their environment
- if your loved one seems withdrawn, or tense
These are all signs of abuse and neglect and if you notice them you should talk to someone at the nursing home right away. If they do not work to correct the issue, you can contact Tennessee Department of Health about the issue and talk to one of our compassionate and experienced attorneys with the Higgins Firm. Our team will work with you to help you get the compensation that you are eligible to receive for any abuse or neglect your loved one experienced.
