Did a NHC Nursing Home Let a Serial Molester Run Free for Seven Years?

This is an article pertaining to a case where Michael Large served as Virginia Counsel involving Sexual Molestation/Rape in an NHC nursing home.

In a cinderblock nursing home, cradled in the Blue Ridge Mountains surrounding the twin cities of Bristol, Tenn., and Bristol, Va., workers say a predator stalked the elderly in its halls.

They say that for nearly a decade, he fondled, groped and may have even sodomized patients—some of whom couldn’t walk, speak or see.

Affidavits, an investigator’s memo and other documents obtained by the Scene identify the man as James W. Wright, a nurses’ aide. Wright declined to comment when the Scene contacted him at his Bristol, Va., home.

But despite repeated complaints from fellow employees, managers at the National HealthCare Corp. (NHC) Bristol facility allowed him to stay on the job.
