White House, Tenn. nursing home Windlands Center has a strict policy about your security deposit and dying: If you think you might be on your way out, you better tell us if you want your money back.

Because 81-year-old Lucille Harrell expired and broke her contract like a bad college tenant, the nursing home kept $900 of her deposit. Hey, her time on this earth is our money, right?

Days manager John McCrory told WSMV: "If they see they are having lots of problems, I even recommend they give 30-day notice at that time, that way it'll cut off some of the costs."

Says son Randy, "This came on so suddenly who knows to give a notice like that?"

Tough. In the nursing home biz, old people are fungible commodities. Doesn't mean empty rooms don't cost.
