Nursing Home Litigation – CANHR #canhr, #ccrc, #long #term #care #advocacy, #lawyer #referral #service,

Nursing Home Litigation

By William F. Taylor, Esq.

A decade ago few attorneys in California were aware of the magnitude of the resident neglect taking place in nursing homes and other institutional settings. Even fewer were aware of the legal remedies available and the strategic and tactical approaches to take in successfully representing injured nursing home residents and their families. Today, thanks in significant part to the advocacy and educational efforts of CANHR, that has changed for the better.

Most attorneys engaged in representing consumers are now aware of this field of practice, and may have focused their practices on helping the victims of neglect and abuse to secure compensation. Today, an elder who suffers an avoidable fall, or who develops a serious pressure ulcer, or who is subjected to other forms of abuse and neglect, has a much better chance of being able to locate counsel to provide representation.

These are all positive developments. Unfortunately, despite the increased attention focused on the problems of nursing home residents, neglect and abuse continue. Here are just three examples noted from a review of recent State investigations (See CANHR Citation Watch Consumer Report contained in the CANHR Advocate, Spring 2006, based upon a review of data from the California Department of Health Services):

  • A resident admitted to a Skilled Nursing Facility (SNF) on 4/4/05 was noted to be at risk of pressure ulcers, yet over the next four months the care plan, which called for a specialty mattress, was ignored, and a heel pressure ulcer developed, and grew worse leading to gangrene and amputation. [Citation 03140702339]
  • On 9/12/05, a resident was transferred by a single staff member without assistance, in violation of a care plan requiring a two person assist using a mechanical lift; the resident fell to the floor, fractured both legs, and died two days later. [Citation 07175202608]
  • On 1/10/05 a resident complained that she had been placed in bed against her will and that a staff member stuffed a sock in her mouth, which caused her mouth to bleed. The episode of abuse was corroborated, yet the facility failed to report the incident to the Department of health Services until one month later. [Citation 01173702174]

These examples can be multiplied hundreds of times. Many attorneys who have attended CANHR conferences can cite far worse cases.

In fact, the extent of neglect may be growing worse due to a decline in the regulatory efforts to enforce the nursing home standard of care regulations. In the past several years the efforts of the California Department of Health Services, never very effective in its enforcement efforts, have grown even weaker, with the Department of Health Services failing to investigate complaints of abuse, neglect and patient rights violations within the time frame allowed by law. CANHR has brought suit against the California Department of Health Services because of its failure to comply with the time requirements for investigating complaints about conditions and treatment in nursing homes.

At the same time, the nursing home industry as it calls itself has embraced a number of practices, including, in some cases, the withholding of patients charts pending internal review. In an effort to avoid liability, nursing home chains have created corporate or limited liability shells for each individual facility. Other facilities have reduced or eliminated insurance coverage. And the industry has, of course, turned to the media and legislature to complain about how unfair it is that they can be sued. Defense attorneys have also become more sophisticated, with a number of firms now specializing in the defense of elder abuse cases.

In this author s view, the primary underlying problem remains the same. It is the unrestrained drive for profits that often results in nursing home owners and operators ignoring the legally mandated minimums of staffing, service and care. This attitude best accounts for the pervasive patterns of neglect and abuse that have been detected and documented in California s nursing homes over the past three decades.*

*For example, see California Nursing Homes: Care Problems Persist Despite Federal and State Oversight (July 1998), USGAO Report to the Special Committee on Aging, United State Senate. See also the following reports by the Commission on California State Government Organization and Economy (the Little Hoover Commission): Care Without Dignity (April 1991); The Medical Care of California s Nursing Home Residents: Inadequate Care, Inadequate Oversight (February 1989); New and Continuing Impediments to Improving the Quality of Life and the Quality of Care in California s Nursing Homes (May 1987); The Bureaucracy of Care: Continuing Policy Issues for Nursing Home Services and Regulation (August 12983); Long Term Care: Providing Compassion Without Confusion (December 1979). See also CANHR, Status Report on California s Nursing Home Industry (1997); Citation Report: California s Nursing Homes for 2002 (2001 and 2002).

Classes (Online)

Classes (Online)

Classes are pre-made character archetypes in The Elder Scrolls Online . During character customization, players must choose from one of five classes:

Each class has three unique skill lines. In addition to classes, players have access to weapon. armor. guild. PvP, and racial skill lines, as well as the mutually exclusive vampire and werewolf lines.

Trivia Edit

  • Classes are much more restrictive than previous games in The Elder Scrolls series, since players are locked out of a number of skills based on their class.
  • The Warden was a planned class or placeholder name that was cut from the final release of The Elder Scrolls Online . It was later re-added as an exclusive class that comes with The Elder Scrolls Online: Morrowind chapter.

  • Types of Sexual Violence #types #of #sexual #violence,types,sexual #assault,child #sexual #abuse,intimate #partner #violence,incest,sexual #assault

    #

    Types of Sexual Violence

  • Sexual Harassment – You should be able to feel comfortable in your place of work or learning. If you are being sexually harassed, you can report it to the authorities at your job, school, or local law enforcement.
  • Stalking – Learn more about stalking behaviors to help you notice them before they escalate—and take steps to protect yourself.
  • Adult Survivors of Child Sexual Abuse – Many perpetrators of sexual abuse are in a position of trust or responsible for the child’s care, such as a family member, teacher, clergy member, or coach.
  • Using Technology to Hurt Others – Some people use technology, such as digital photos, videos, apps, and social media, to engage in harassing, unsolicited, or non-consensual sexual interactions.
  • Sexual Exploitation by Helping Professionals – Sexual exploitation by a helping professional is a serious violation of your trust and, in many cases, the law.
  • Multiple-Perpetrator Sexual Assault – Multiple-perpetrator sexual assault, sometimes called gang rape, occurs when two or more perpetrators act together to sexually assault the same victim.
  • Elder Abuse – As the number of older adults in America increases, it will become all the more important to be aware of the warning signs of elder abuse.
  • Sexual Abuse of People with Disabilities – Consent is crucial when any person engages in sexual activity, but it plays an even bigger, and more complicated role when someone has a disability.
  • Prisoner Rape – If you’re an inmate, a former inmate, or know an inmate who survived sexual assault while in prison, there are resources available to you.
  • Military Sexual Trauma – Military Sexual Trauma, or MST, is the term used by the Department of Veteran Affairs to describe the effects of sexual violence experienced by a military Service member.
  • Legal Role of Consent – The legal definitions for terms like rape, sexual assault, and sexual abuse vary from state to state. Consent often plays an important role in determining whether an act is legally considered a crime.
