WREG reported on the tragic “dumping” of Noah Mangum by Collierville Nursing and Rehabilitation. Collierville Nursing and Rehab is a facility with a history of documented problems. The facility had three outbreaks during the pandemic, at least four people died. Mangum called the News Channel 3 Investigators after seeing reports on problems at nursing homes during the pandemic.
“You could be laying in bed dead and nobody’d never know because you never saw nobody. I mean, if they came in at 11 o’clock, you might not see a CNA until five, four forty eight in the morning.”
He was evicted. WREG learned that nursing homes were kicking residents out just as the virus was spreading in facilities. According the National Consumer Voice for Quality Long-Term Care, facility initiated discharges were the most common complaint to the Long-Term Care Ombudsman Program over the last nine years.
