Memphis Nursing Home in trouble

Admissions have recently been suspended at a Memphis, Tennessee nursing home. Also, the Tennessee Department of Health has fined the home for violations. According to records, the home was cited for failing to provided necessary basic services, failed to administer medications or treatment in accordance with doctor’s orders and failed to protect residents from accidents, injuries or harm. A special monitor will be appointed to review the nursing home’s operations.
Again we have a home that people depend upon to take care of their loved ones that appears to have failed. Nursing home neglect is too common. It is a national crisis that needs to be addressed.
I believe the first step is simply to hire enough staff to take care of the residents and to hire people that are truly there to help. In order to attract professional, qualified staff the nursing home should pay a decent wage. This will require the homes to worry less about their bottom line and more about the welfare of the people who reside in the home.

What Our Clients Say
★★★★★
When my mother was neglected in a nursing home I was referred to The Higgins Firm for help. They did a great job representing my family and obtained a significant settlement. Hopefully, this will keep someone else's parent from being mistreated in the future. Angie S.
★★★★★
I have a large collection practice and don't handle personal injury cases. Instead of simply declining a case, I referred it to The Higgins Firm. They handled everything. My client got a large recovery and I got a large co-counsel fee. The client and I were both very happy. Attorney Bo Melton
★★★★★
The best injury lawyers in Nashville. They represented my son in a car accident case and did an awesome job. James D.
