In a recent case, a daughter filed for abuse and the wrongful death of her mother, institutionalized in a nursing home. The allegations were that the elder was fine one day, and rushed to the hospital in critical condition the next. She was only in the facility for five weeks. After these allegations arose, authorities investigated the nursing home. The investigators drew adverse conclusions on the health and wellness standards of the facility and the effects of the low qualities of care on patients.
Advocates call for a stricter eye on skilled nursing facilities for our elderly. Reforms and improvements in enforcement take time. If you or someone you know has been a victim of abuse in a nursing home, call the authorities but also be sure to pursue your civil remedies in court. California offers additional and very substantial awards to senior victims of financial and physical elder abuse. We at Evans Law Firm, Inc. have vest experience with those kinds of cases.
