Fighting for Elder Rights in Sacramento and the Surrounding Communities
Elder abuse is a growing crime in the United States, with thousands of elderly people being maltreated every year. Most of the time, this abuse occurs at home at the hands of family and friends. Nursing home abuse is common, as well, and can be committed by staff or by other residents.
There are many different types of elder abuse, the most common of which are:
When an older person is treated with such cruelty, illness or injury could occur. Physical abuse, neglect, or lack of proper care could result in bedsores or other infections which, if left unattended, could result in sepsis. Without proper supervision, a patient could wander or elope, or they could suffer a fall. Also, improper nutritional care could result in malnutrition or dehydration, which could escalate to more serious medical conditions.

After a critical two months where our client was not bathed and multiple changes of condition went uncommunicated, unreported, and uncared for, she was ambulance out to an Emergency Room, where her doctors and family were shocked to find that she had a stage IV sacral decubitus ulcer.
Unbeknownst to prospective residents and their families, this defendant RCFE chain was willing to systematically violate laws and its own policies designed to protect vulnerable elders. Willing to admit scores of profitable, high need residents (such as our client), and leave them at the mercy of a few unqualified, untrained and overburdened caregivers.
Through exhaustive investigation, we found that our client’s death was not the result of a few isolated mistakes by care-givers. Rather, it was the result of this corporate facility’s policies prioritizing occupancy and revenue, while ignoring staff training, staff supervision, and the quality of care being delivered.
While eating dinner at a Skilled Nursing Facility, our client was confronted by another resident who punched him, resulting in our client’s tragic death. The other resident had resided at the facility for five months, and over the course of those five months had engaged in numerous altercations with other residents, including two altercations that occurred in the 24-hour period before he assaulted and killed our client.
During our client’s roughly ten-week stay at a skilled nursing facility, he would suffer 8 falls, lose twenty (20) pounds, and develop an unstageable left heel pressure ulcer and a stage II coccyx pressure ulcer due to the facility’s reckless neglect. He was transferred to the hospital, where he was found severely dehydrated, his left heel wound required debridement for eschar and gangrene, and for the first time, a stage II coccyx ulcer was identified.
Our 84-year-old client was the victim of financial elder abuse related to a number of transactions, including the purchase of a home. The Defendant's real estate agents, lender, and escrow company all failed to protect our client throughout the process of purchasing the home, which was orchestrated by a woman who fraudulently siphoned off our client’s entire life savings.
