Wrongful Discharge Attorney in Sacramento

Laws Regarding Medical Care in California

In the United States, it is illegal for a hospital to refuse medical to a person, no matter their physical or financial state. Uninsured people, young and old alike have every right to receive the treatment they need if they are ill or injured. Likewise, a nursing home or assisted living facility cannot discharge a patient who is still in need of care, even if their Medicare or Medicaid is denied or if the monthly fees have not been paid. Such actions are considered to be elder abuse and should be fought. In these situations, you need an elder abuse lawyer in Sacramento that is adamant about protecting your rights and the rights of your loved ones. Call our office today.

Understanding Wrongful Discharge

Regarding nursing home abuse situations, the facility may come up with numerous threats or excuses to wrongfully discharge a patient, but with counsel and representation from a Sacramento elder abuse attorney, you could fight for the treatment your elderly loved one needs, as well as the compensation they deserve for their maltreatment. Care facilities may even tell you that the discharge is acceptable because they are "transferring" the patient to another facility, or they can receive adequate care from family and friends at home. It is illegal for a patient to be transferred without consent, so consult with an attorney from Newman Law Group LLP before agreeing to any discharge or transfers.
