Get the Representation Your Loved One Deserves

Of the thousands of nursing homes available throughout the country, you worked hard to select one for your loved one that you felt comfortable with. So to find out that your family member is being neglected or abused is not only disheartening, but disturbing.

The abuse that goes on in nursing homes is often kept quiet behind closed doors and can manifest itself in many different forms. Whether emotional, physical, or financial, the repercussions are devastating and must be dealt with. But who is ultimately responsible and how can you hold them accountable?

As you begin the arduous task of resolving this issue, draw upon the legal knowledge of our Chattanooga elder law attorney. Call (423) 896-1164 today.

Who Is Liable For Nursing Home Abuse?

Unfortunately, pinning legal responsibility on one party is harder than it sounds. Most elder care facilities are backed by powerful attorneys who will do anything to avoid the shame of a lawsuit. That being said, substantial proof is required for the success of your case. Tennessee holds nursing homes to a certain "duty of care" as they interact with residents. Your case must prove that this duty of care was broken and that because of it, your loved one suffered abuse.

The duty of care may be broken when:

  • Staff has not been properly trained
  • There is an insufficient number of staff members on duty
  • Residents are exposed to health or safety hazards
  • The facility lacks ample security
  • Staff members deliberately abuse residents
  • Medical neglect occurs

If you do have reason to suspect that abuse is a problem at your loved one's nursing home, it's best to immediately step in. Consult with your attorney first, as they will be able to create a proactive approach to the problem.
