For this week’s Tennessee Law blog entry, I’d hoped to define workplace discrimination under Tennessee employment law and discuss how many recent class action discrimination cases are not the result of meanness or maliciousness on the part of an employer. Instead, I’m pushing this article back to report what will hopefully prove the last Tennessee nursing home abuse story for 2007.
Nashville nursing home McKendree Village, one of Nashville’s best-known nursing home facilities, on Friday became the 21st Tennessee nursing home in 2007 to have admissions suspended due to violations.
Tennessee Department of Health officials have fined McKendree Village $15,000 and suspended resident admissions to the 40-year-old Nashville nursing home for what investigators claim were a variety of violations. From the Tennessee investigators’ report, the federal government has ended Medicare and Medicaid payments to the Nashville nursing home.
McKendree Village is a 300-bed nursing home located Hermitage, TN (East Nashville) and has a covenant relationship with the Tennessee Annual Conference of the United Methodist Church.
