Court: TN Court of Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Jacqueline B. Dixon, Attorney Ad Litem, Nashville, Tennessee, for the appellant, Bill Bartlett.

Attorneys 2:

Monica D. Edwards, Nashville, Tennessee, for the appellee, Vanderbilt University Medical Center. A. Michelle Poss, Conservator, Nashville, for the appellee, Conservatorship of Bill Bartlett.

Judge(s): ARMSTRONG

This is a conservatorship case. Appellee hospital filed a petition for appointment of an expedited limited healthcare fiduciary for the Appellant patient because the hospital believed that Appellant could not be safely discharged without assistance. The trial court determined that the appointment of a limited healthcare fiduciary was appropriate and in the Appellant’s best interest. The trial court then granted Appellee’s motion to amend its petition to include the appointment of a conservator. The trial court found that Appellant is an individual with disabilities, and further found that it is in the Appellant’s best interest to have a conservator appointed. Appellant appeals. Discerning no error, we affirm and remand.
