We have looked at the hard data that explains the ongoing neglect of elders in for-profit nursing homes and assisted living facilities.
Sacramento, CA (PRWEB) March 21, 2014
Three Sacramento attorneys have launched a new campaign to improve elder patient care in California and protect the public from nursing home chains that abuse and neglect their patients. They have identified six chains in California that families should evaluate carefully.
STOP EA(Stop Elder Abuse) was created to raise awareness in California around the dangers of elderly abuse and to seek justice for families whose loved ones have been neglected in these facilities. It also aims to improve education on the importance of maintaining proper physical and mental health of the elderly.
Ed Dudensing, Jay Renneisen and Sean Laird, who have extensive experience as California elder abuse attorneys, formed the STOP EA coalition.
As part of the campaign launch, STOP EA has identified six for-profit nursing home, assisted living facility, and hospice chains in California that raise red flags - view the six here. These corporations repeatedly use the same profit-driven philosophy that leads to systemic elder abuse and neglect.
"We have looked at the hard data that explains the ongoing neglect of elders in for-profit nursing homes and assisted living facilities. Using quality assessments, public records provided by the Department of Health, corporate internal documents, and other empirical statistics, we can say without a doubt that these six corporations raise huge red flags." said Jay Renneisen.
STOP EA will stand up for families who have loved ones in these corporate chains and make sure those who have been neglected are provided the justice they deserve.
Often, determining which corporation actually owns a nursing home, assisted living facility or hospice agency is a difficult hurdle for families. As part of its campaign to fight abuse, Stop EA also has built a search function into its’ campaign website for members of the public who would like to identify individual homes that use names not easily associated with their corporate owners.
Those who are concerned about the quality of care their loved ones may be receiving in one of these facilities can obtain a free, private case evaluation from STOP EA by calling 1-866-864-1800.
