The daughter of a Dementia patient at Brandon Nursing Home & Rehabilitation Center in Brandon, Mississippi is accusing the nursing home of abusing and neglecting her mother.
The woman has been told numerous times by the nursing home that her mother falls frequently. Most recently she was told her mother fell from her wheelchair and fractured her arm and eye and had to be hospitalized.
The elderly woman’s daughter has posted pictures on Facebook of her mother showing her very bruised face. She says she feels strongly that her mother is a victim of nursing home abuse.
Brandon Nursing Home & Rehabilitation Center has declined to comment on the situation at this time, saying only that they are required to report any abuse or neglect to the Mississippi Department of Health and the Attorney General’s Office.
The family of the alleged victim say they have filed a formal complaint and plan to take legal action.
We advise all families that suspect a loved one had been a victim of abuse or neglect in their nursing home to notify the police immediately and contact a qualified nursing home abuse lawyer to discuss your legal options.
