People in Tennessee as well as people all across the country want the very best for their elderly loved ones. We want to know they are going to be well taken care of and kept safe even though we can no longer care for them by ourselves. This is why many Tennessee residents visit many nursing homes trying to decide on the best one for their loved ones and friends. Unfortunately, sometimes even the nursing homes we think are the good ones face problems, accidents, and malpractice with their patients. If you feel that your loved one has been the victim of abuse or malpractice, then you should talk to a Tennessee nursing home abuse lawyer right away. They will hear your case and make sure you get the compensation you and your loved ones deserve.
In this case, Cynthia King is filing a lawsuit against the Park Manor Humble nursing home claiming negligence and wrongful death. According to the lawsuit, King claims that in November 2008, her mother needed to be hospitalized after her leg was fractured and her shoulder dislocated due to falling out of her wheelchair while under the care of the nursing home. In February 2009, King’s mother had to have surgery because she developed a stage IV pressure sore on her back due to the nursing home failing to turn her in bed regularly. Also, according to the lawsuit, King’s mother died as a result of multiple surgeries and wounds she had to endure because of the nursing home failure to provide her with proper care. Cynthia is seeking damages under the wrongful death statue and court costs.
