Residential Care Facilities for the Elderly Pursued For Elder Abuse
With the aging population, California has a growing number of new Residential Care Facilities for the Elderly (RFCE). Unfortunately, RFCEs have become more focused on the business than the elderly and the caregivers are generally undertrained and overworked.
In consequence, the residents can be often neglected and can suffer a myriad of health conditions, for example bedsores or UTIs, because the RFCEs cannot provide timely or proper care to their residents. Out California nursing home abuse attorneys have seen many cases where substandard care jeopardized the well-being oof elderly patients.
If you or a loved one arrives at this point, you should report the abuse to State Agencies and file a suit. Also, the evidence is the key to win a lawsuit. You should ask for the care records as soon as possible from the facility.
