Elderly Resident at Nursing Home Overdosed

In our experience of pursuing Tennessee Nursing Home Negligence Cases, we have unfortunately discovered that many nursing homes are understaffed, the staff overworked, and improperly trained.

In one case, Deborah Norman and her sister Elizabeth Marquis claim that their father had been overdosed while a patient of the Pawtuxet Village Care and Rehabilitation Center. In an investigation conducted by Medicare, it has been revealed that their father was indeed given powerful medicines that almost killed him. He was taken to the hospital and went into a coma. He survived; however, the sisters are appalled and disappointed by the lack of care at the Pawtuxet Village Care and Rehabilitation Center. The daughters have stated that they are considering filing a civil lawsuit against Sunbridge, the parent company of the nursing home.

Sunbridge runs another nursing home in the state, but there has been no evidence that the facility is being run improperly. The Department of Heath closed the Pawtuxet Village Care and Rehabilitation Center in April. The Sunbridge Company denied comment on the Medicare investigation.

Cases similar to this one occur all too often to people all over the United States and even to Tennessee residents.
