Elder Abuse: Captured On Video At California Facility

The California Department of Social Services revoked the residential care home license from Fair Oaks Care Home.  The revocation comes after the family of a patient at the facility came forth with a hidden video demonstrating staff abusing the elderly patient.

Elder Abuse Captured On VideoIn addition to abusive living conditions, the state further alleges that the facility was unfit to care for patients due to:

  • Fire code violations
  • Improperly disposing dirty needles
  • Forging prescription
  • Dispensing expired prescriptions

Sadly, the abusive conditions in the video were not discovered until after the death of the woman at the facility.  Though the woman’s death is still under investigation, an autopsy did determine that there were potentially toxic levels of narcotics in the woman’s system and the presence of other medications for which a physician never prescribed.

Client Reviews

Jonathan did a great job helping my family navigate through a lengthy lawsuit involving my grandmother's death in a nursing home. Through every step of the case, Jonathan kept my family informed of the progression of the case. Although our case eventually settled at a mediation, I really was impressed at how well prepared Jonathan was to take the case to trial. Lisa
After I read Jonathan’s Nursing Home Blog, I decided to hire him to look into my wife’s treatment at a local nursing home. Jonathan did a great job explaining the process and the laws that apply to nursing homes. I immediately felt at ease and was glad to have him on my side. Though the lawsuit process was at times frustrating, Jonathan reassured me, particularly at my deposition. I really felt like Jonathan cared about my wife’s best interests, and I think that came across to the lawyers for the nursing home. Eric
