Emotional or Psychological Abuse of Nursing Home Residents
Though many people first consider the physical wellbeing and care a nursing home resident receives, their emotional and psychological wellbeing is just as critical to their overall health. However, many nursing home residents in Nashville do not only receive the emotional care they need, but are mistreated in these aspects as well. In fact, as our team at Pohl & Berk, LLP, are all too aware of the myriad of types of emotional and psychological abuse that nursing home residents are subjected to.

Any of these types of abuse could be devastating emotionally or psychologically for a nursing home resident.
