Work with an Elder Abuse Attorney
Have you been contacted by the Facilities Enforcement Team recently, in the event that you represent a corporate entity? It conducts investigations and brings criminal charges against corporate enterprises that are accused of providing insufficient care to citizens. Investigations are conducted into 1,340 different entities in the state of California to make certain that elder abuse is not occurring or is not continuing to occur.
This encompasses both hospitals and residential care facilities in addition to skilled nursing homes. The following are some examples of allegations that could potentially lead to charges of misdemeanor or felony elder abuse:
- There is not enough available staff to cater to the requirements of senior patients.
- Modifying or fabricating the medical records or charts of a patient.
- Not appropriately addressing issues related to hygiene.
- Failing to offer adequate medical care for both physical and mental health.
- Failing to avoid starvation and dehydration.
Or, have you received a response from APS? Adult Protective Services is a program that operates in a manner analogous to that of Child Protective Services. It conducts investigations into accusations of elder abuse and, if necessary, prosecutes and brings individuals who abuse an elderly person before a court of law.
