Join us this evening as Tracey Miller returns to the show to discuss the realities of retaliation against families and victims for speaking out and exposing the abuse and fraud in guardianship.

Families across the country have been targeted through the courts for exposing the rampant abuse of “wards” by those who use the system to profit.  Using character assassination, unfounded charges of neglect, abuse and exploitation, those who fight for the rights of the ward are systematically  attacked by the predators.  No evidence needed; none ever produced.  In fact, most “probate” courts never even require any evidence to be produced by those making the charges. Supposedly, the predators word is enough to enter the charges as fact in the courts.

Tracey and I will be talking about the very real threat of physical retaliation as families fight back against a growing and highly protected system of human trafficking for profit that operates with the cooperation and facilitation of the probate and family courts.

Speaking out?  It could get you hurt!

Florida Nursing Home Owner Shield: FL bill 670 a clear violation of federal statute

3 Comments

new-logo25Marti Oakley

_____________________________________________________________________

The Florida House and Senate recently passed a clearly protectionist bill. Fl 670, meant to shield the owners, investors, managers and other employees and individuals from liability for their failure to protect, and to ensure the well-being and rights of home residents, is a clear violation of federal code regarding these same individuals.

Rick Scott, Florida governor and holder of the largest Medicare Fraud Scam on record, dutifully signed this bill into law knowing full well that the abuse, neglect and deprivation of individual rights of nursing home residents would explode as a result.

Scott, apparently not remotely concerned with what is an obvious conflict of interest, or, against the best interests of nursing home residents, signed FL 670 into law.  This despite his active construction of the largest Medicare scams in US history.

10308126_655703157817352_3150440186206186545_nMiami officials exposed the fraud in June of 2009. Five states were involved and several fake businesses were found operating with the intent to defraud Medicare and Medicare Advantage for non-existent drugs and treatments for cancer and HIV. Scott, and seven other defendants were identified in the scam.

Guess how much time any one of them served for this fraud and theft? If you guessed “0“, you would be correct. Instead of going to prison for grand larceny, theft by deception or any other relevant charge, they paid 1.7 billion in fines and settlement and got a “get out of jail for 1.7 billion” pass.  Of course, we can find no evidence that the fine was actually ever paid in part or full.  More

This evening we will be talking about the systems of abuse employed by CPS and APS, and how the courts are instrumental in the kidnapping and redistribution of our children, the disabled and the elderly, all for profit.  Joining us from Texas will be Joni Saloom, whose son was taken from her as the result of a court proceeding that she was not notified was taking place.

“Joni didn’t learn, until months later by accident, that on Monday, May 07, 2012, Associate Judge Conrad Moren and Judge Lisa Millard switched “primary managing conservatorship” from Joni to Child’s adjudicated father without notice, without a hearing, and without a chance to present evidence or be represented by an attorney. Her son calls someone else “Mommy” and took classes on how to “grieve for the loss of his [real] ‘Mommy.’  . “

This is standard fair in these kangaroo, family and probate courts. These types of activities take place every day across America as our children are bought, sold and traded for money by state agencies.  This is human trafficking.  Just because an agency, an attorney or a bogus “court” is involved, makes it no less the crime that it is.

We are commodities.

Please feel free to call in with your comments or questions.

Marcia Southwick joins us to report on the convention held last week covering guardianship.  Attendees came from various perspectives and countries.

The convention was sponsored by the BAR Association and the National Guardianship Association, among many other “stakeholders”.  Both groups, whose activities are diametrically opposed to their stated purposes, had intended the convention to be a huge marketing campaign.

Attending with the intentions of highlighting the real state of guardianship for profit, was Marcia Southwick and Elaine Renoire from NASGA.  Many other advocates and activists, many of whom have been directly impacted by predatory, court facilitated guardianships, were also in attendance.

Florida’s most lucrative cottage industry: The Trafficking of Humans

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

“Judges all over the country participate in this scam. The transfer of funds and real property is done under “color of law” through “court order” where a judge orders the isolation of the elderly from their loved ones and then allows falsified, fraudulent and extortive fees and expenses to guardians and their attorneys.” ___________________________________________________________________

Rampant abuse of and atrocities against the elderly, children and other vulnerable Americans is occurring all over America.

The arrest of family members in this situation is commonplace as they are desperate to remove their parents from corrupt guardians and unlawful courts

1470004_10200960591557963_1004750255_aThe abuse of the elderly by guardians is dependent on their ability to operate their enterprise in secrecy. They do this by filing fraudulent lies and slanderous allegations against family members to colluding judges to obtain unlawful orders under “color of law” that prohibit family members from seeing their elderly loved ones. By isolating vulnerable elderly people from their family members, the abuse and atrocities are done insidiously and without any eyes by the family on their abuse.

These guardians count on secrecy to deprive their “wards” of all services. They then divert the assets from the people whom they are entrusted to provide care to, to their own enterprise.  They sell their homes from under them, they loot and sell their possession, they engage in a feeding frenzy of their assets.

5 Reasons to Defeat Nursing Home Bill

2 Comments

 Health News Florida

Brian Lee of Families for Better Care

Brian Lee, executive director, Families for Better Care
The historic “compromise deal” between the nursing home industry and the trial bar now in Florida’s Legislature may soon become Florida’s most epic fail for elderly nursing home residents.  Here are five facts about the “sweetheart deal” that’s designed to rob residents of their rights: 

 

Fact #1—Culpable decision makers would be immunized from accountability in cases of resident abuse and neglect

For those residents who are harmed and seek a lawsuit, they would lose any and all ability to seek punitive damages against a corporate owner.  Immunity for culpable decision makers would be in all cases, regardless of the severity of the injury and almost regardless of the actions of the corporate shell investor.  Residents would also lose the ability to even sue the corporate owner that fundamentally makes the decisions on how a nursing home is run, how budgets are set and how much is skimmed off for profits.

Fact #2—Residents would be prohibited from accessing records
Nondisclosure of medical records will become commonplace under this compromise deal as the entire records section would be unenforceable.  If residents wish to examine their records and nursing homes refuse to furnish requested copies, then residents would be forced to hire an attorney to subpoena their records.  Since the vast majority of nursing home residents are Medicaid recipients who are unable to afford legal services, this bill disenfranchises them of their federally mandated right to inspect and request copies of records at anytime without hindrance.

Fact #3—Families expect Florida to keep staffing promise
The last time the Legislature gave the nursing home industry comprehensive tort reform (2001), Floridians got a strong staffing standard in return.  But in recent years, the Legislature has dropped those staffing requirements.  This downturn has negatively impacted resident care as 20 percent of Florida’s nursing homes now sit atop the state’s watch list for dangerous care.  Residents and families expect Florida to keep its staffing promise before considering any new tort reform.

#4—Investment capital is pouring into nursing homes
The nursing home’s bull market continued to rage through 2013 by stampeding market averages on its way to an unprecedented fourth consecutive year of strong growth.  Investment analysts raved about the booming market, saying:

  • “Skilled nursing stocks outperform … companies beat market averages in a bullish year.
  • “Senior housing sector … made it through the Great Recession in better shape, and with better returns, than any other real estate type.”
  • “Surging market and acquisition … a record year for number of publicly announced [transactions]. . . for the first time ever surpassed 200 announced transactions in a single year.”
  • “The breadth of the market is about as deep as we’ve seen it as the number of players does not appear to be shrinking.”

#5—Aon’s lawsuit study is flawed, not “independent”
For the second year in a row, Aon’s Long-Term Care General Liability and Professional Liability Actuarial Analysis is little more than a morass of self-reported nursing home data.

Aon used shrouded, unverifiable records supplied solely by the large nursing home chains in response to a data call (fewer than 10 percent of Florida’s facilities participated in the so-called study).  Aon willingly admits that data are “inherently uncertain” and have not been independently examined, which “could have a significant effect on the results of [Aon’s] review and analysis.”

Not surprisingly, Aon is a company that offers professional liability insurance for long-term care providers, making Aon part of the nursing home industry.

Protect elderly nursing home residents and their rights! Call your legislators and demand a “no” vote on (SB 670 and HB 569).

Brian Lee is executive director for Families for Better Care, based in Tallahassee.
