It appears that the State of California and the owners of a troubled assisted living facility in Alameda County share responsibility for essentially abandoning elderly residents in 2013. The residents were left behind for several days after state officials ordered the facility closed.
Increasingly, California families are unable to care for their oldest members. There are many instances when nursing home patients are abused or neglected. Injuries that arise out of nursing home abuse include pressure ulcers, malnutrition, infections, falls, dehydration and financial abuse. An experienced nursing home abuse attorney can help California families hold a nursing home accountable for failing to take care for its patients and help ensure that an abused patient is compensated for the pain that he or she had to endure.
