Third Tennessee Negligent Nursing Home in Two Months

Another Tennessee nursing home is in hot water. Tennessee Department of Health Commissioner Susan R. Cooper has suspended admissions to yet another Tennessee nursing home. The most recent culprit of providing inadequate facilitated care is Beech Tree Manor, a 110-bed nursing home located in Jellico, Tennessee, north of Knoxville near the Kentucky border.

Last Friday, the nursing home was ordered to suspend admissions and fined $1,500 by the State of Tennessee with a recommended federal penalty of $6,175 a day be imposed until the violations are corrected. This was a result of earlier investigations that found violations in quality of care and nursing service standards.
Nursing homes are at heart businesses, and suspended admissions and levying fines are the main way the state can make sure a nursing home cleans up its act. The order to suspend admissions remains as long as conditions remain below standard. The written order must be posted at the entrance of the nursing home in plain sight as a warning and notification to those whose family members might have suffered nursing home abuse.

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.
