This is all about protecting our elderly, the taxpayer, and the employee, all at the same time.
Washington, DC (PRWEB) June 8, 2009
The Nursing Home Complaint Center has been created to be the premier advocacy group in the nation, for senior citizens suffering wrongful death, abuse and neglect. At the same time the Nursing Home Complaint Center will focus on Medicare-Medicaid fraud, class actions, and wage and hour investigations in most major US cities. The Nursing Home Complaint Center wants to team up with law firms in each US state, that have a personal injury practice, with a focus on elder abuse, class actions, and/or employee wage and hour issues. This is a year-long project, and there will be a modest fee involved, for listing the participating law firms on the site. For more information, interested law firms can call Americas Watchdog's Nursing Home Complaint Center anytime at 866-714-6466, or contact the group via its web site at Http://NursingHomeComplaintCenter.com.
So what types of issues is the group looking for? Americas Watchdog says, "once our legal team is in place, the Nursing Home Complaint Center will focus weekly press releases on elder abuse, Medicare or Medicaid fraud, Class Actions, or Wage and Hour investigations." As follows:
- Nursing home neglect that involves wrongful death
- Nursing homes not providing patients with minimum time per day.
- Nursing homes over billing Medicare for testing that was never done.
- Nursing homes not changing patients. (the patient then gets septic infections and then they often die)
- Nursing-homes, or elder care firms that, instead of sending an actual nurse, or LPN, send a undocumented worker to spend the day with the patient.
- Nursing homes not paying overtime to their employees, or abiding by FLSA.
- Possible class issues related to standard of care, drug costs, testing schemes, etc.
The group says, "This is all about protecting our elderly, the taxpayer, and the employee, all at the same time."
According to the Nursing Home Complaint Center, "These are but a few of the issues that we intend to go after, and expose. The great thing for the personal injury law firm, class action firm, or wage and hour firm, is we have experience doing every aspect of the investigation, we know exactly what we are looking for, and we have a great plan that should produce dramatic results for everyone involved."
According to the Nursing Home Complaint Center, "The ideal medium, to large law firm would specialize in, personal injury, with a practice emphasis on wrongful death, nursing home abuse, class action type issues, and/or wage and hour issues, etc. These types of lawyers will know exactly what we are talking about, they will understand the scope of the problem, and if they are in one of our target markets/states, they will understand exactly why we intend to have an insider campaign as part of this initiative." These type of law firms are welcome to call Americas Watchdog anytime at 866-714-6466, or contact the group via their web site at Http://NursingHomeComplaintCenter.com.
