This case involves an elderly man in Tennessee who suffered injuries after being lifted up improperly. The man had been bedridden for an extended period of time due to a degenerative nervous system condition. The man was to be transferred into a wheelchair for transportation to another part of the hospital. Two nurses then attempted to move him by pulling on his arms, causing the man to scream in pain. Nevertheless, the nurses continued their attempts to lift the man, eventually dropping him on the floor and causing a serious arm injury.
