Local nursing facility faces multi-million dollar lawsuit

The Wilson Post

A lawsuit filed against local nursing home Lebanon Health and Rehabilitation accuses the facility, its parent companies and select personnel of malpractice and violating state and federal regulations in regards to the death of a patient.

Filed Friday, June 29, by attorney Jason Denton of Rochelle McCulloch and Aulds, PLLC, the complaint stems from an investigation conducted by the Tennessee Department of Health in 2011, which found at least one immediate jeopardy violation, including inconsistencies in the facilitys records about the death of Willie James Montgomery.

The complaint alleges that Lebanon Health and Rehab, located at 731 Castle Heights Court, parent company Sava SeniorCare LLC, as well as a handful of personnel were responsible for the death of Montgomery, who died on March 8, 2011.

According to the TDOH investigative report, Montgomery died of acute cardiac arrest and the report detailed several inconsistencies within the medical records and accounts from nurses about when physicians were notified of Montgomerys critical potassium levels.

The lawsuit claims Lebanon Health and Rehab failed to conform to the standard of care prevailing in this and similar communities for healthcare providers performing similar services and were guilty of medical malpractice in treating Mr. Montgomery.

More than 100 dogs rescued Tuesday

The Wilson Post

Over 100 dogs were rescued from a home near Lebanon on Tuesday and taken to an emergency shelter at the Tennessee State Fairgrounds, saving the animals from unsafe living conditions.

According to Wilson County Animal Control Director Mary Burger, the dogs were living at the home of a woman who took in stray dogs. WCSD Lt. Steve Gatlin said the woman was a hoarder who tried to care for the animals, but just had too many to adequately provide for their wellbeing.

"It was a bad scene, but she actually thought she was doing the right thing, Gatlin said.

Burger said the woman has been taking dogs in off the street for years and the numbers at her home also increased from dogs having puppies. Gatlin noted on Monday when he and Burger visited the home, a puppy was found deceased but were not sure of the cause.

The mother was not emaciated, she was well fed, Gatlin said. It could have been the heat or the living condition, we just dont know.

While the dogs were said to be living in makeshift pens in some shaded areas, Burger said many of the pens were not clean and some were difficult to get into because of feces and other debris.
