Tennessee Nursing Home Physical Abuse Attorneys
If you have placed your loved one in a nursing home, you have every reason to expect a high level of care and compassion from nursing home staff. The tragic truth is, unfortunately, that not every nursing home offers this type of care. Sometimes, Tennessee area nursing home employees abuse and neglect the residents in their care in various and terrible ways. If you suspect that your elderly loved one has experienced abuse at the hands of his or her nursing home facility, the Tennessee nursing home physical abuse attorneys at Pohl & Berk, LLP, will not let the responsible parties go unpunished.
Common Types of Physical Abuse
Nursing home employees hold a special position of power over the residents in their care. Sadly, under-trained, negligent, or cruel nursing home employees can use this power to abuse residents in several different ways. Some of the most heinous forms of abuse are physical, and they include the following:
- Assault and battery
- Unnecessary restraints
- Food restrictions leading to weight loss
No person should have to put up with abuse in any form, and no nursing facility should be allowed to enact abusive practices against its patients. If you believe that your loved one has been physically abused by nursing home staff, the Tennessee attorneys at Pohl & Berk, LLP, may be able to help you find justice.
