_____________________________________________

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

strip banner

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.

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

strip banner

new-logo25

 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.

Grabbing the Purse–The Abuse of Dorothy Luck

__________________________________________________________________

Every time I read about another abusive guardianship case, I feel ill. I cannot help but wonder why Americans are not rising up in droves and calling their representatives screaming “Stop! Enough! This is wrong on every level!”  

Mainstream Media refuses to report on this horrific crime. Why? Because the gravy train is so lucrative that no one wants it to stop….too many people are making too much money by stealing other people’s money. In the case of Dorothy Luck, she is NOT incompetent, but the judge declared her as incompetent because she refused to settle in a lawsuit and simply because he could. Dorothy describes the probate court overseen by Tarrant County Judge Steve M. King as a “well-oiled group of people who can’t seem to find a way to make money except to take it away from other people.”

In Nassau County Supreme Court in Mineola, NY, the late Judge Joel Asarch, along with Mary Giordano (elder care attorney with Franchina and Giordano in Garden City, NY) and Anne Recht, geriatric care manager (AMRecht Assoc in Plainview, NY) worked together often on a number of cases where the elderly victims were kidnapped from their homes and imprisoned against their will in nursing homes. My own mother was one of their victims. Dorothy Wilson, an innocent 87 year old woman, had her beloved home of 60 years stolen from her. She died in prison; penniless, alone and drugged with antipsychotic medication.           

American’s dirty little secret, if the public was truly aware, would understand that this abuse can happen to anyone at any time. There are thousands of these stories all over the internet. Share the stories, inform everyone you know. Help put a stop to this nightmare before it happens to you.      More

Elder abuse: Monterey County Public Guardian seeks order for chemical restraint

5 Comments

strip banner

new-logo25  DCF 1.0Senior Issues Examiner

Linda Kincaid

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

“The Public Guardian responded to Margarita’s comments by terminating visitation with her daughter.  The Public Guardian sought and obtained a court order to strip Margarita of her right to meet with elder rights advocates. The Public Guardian has denied Margarita all visitation since November 15, 2013.”

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

The Monterey County Public Guardian is seeking authority to forcibly administer antipsychotic (psychotropic) medications to conservatee and elder abuse victim Margarita Zelada.  The FDA has repeatedly warned against administration of psychotropic medications to elderly patients.

California’s Department of Aging posted the following comments about use of antipsychotic drugs on elderly patients.

Title 22 of the California Code of Regulations, Section 72018 defines a CHEMICAL RESTRAINT as: “a drug used to control behavior and used in a manner not required to treat the patient’s medical symptoms.” All residents have a right to be free from the use of chemical restraints. (42 CFR §483.13(a); 22 CCR §72527(a)(23); 22 CCR §72319), yet, the use of antipsychotic drugs on those with dementia is common practice and often used as an alternative to the needed care of these individuals.

California’s Notice of Conservatee’s Rights states the conservatee has the right to:

Make his or her own medical decisions

California’s Handbook for Conservators states on page 284:

Psychotropic drugs

Prescription medicines used to alter cognition, mood, or behavior. These medicines are sometimes used to treat persons with dementia. You need specific prior court authority based on a strong showing to authorize the use of these drugs in the treatment of the conservatee.

Violation of Margarita’s rights is nothing new for the Monterey County Public Guardian.  A request for chemical restraint is the latest in a series of violations of rights and denial of due process. More

Join us this evening as we discuss how to effect change in the lucrative guardianship industry.  While many believe this business to be centered on caring for elderly or disabled adults, the truth of the system is far different.

It must be magic!  Billions are stolen from the estates of elderly victims each year through the process of predatory guardianships.  While state and federal officials pretend not to know what is going on, the victims are drugged, neglected and abused, often times ending up dead once the estate is depleted.

How do we change this system?  And how, do we stop the interference of the BAR Association and other stakeholders, in the guardianship for profit trade?

Debbie Valdez joins us from Texas to discuss the violations of rights of those disabled and the elderly.  Debbie is a “boots on the ground advocate” fighting to preserve and restore the individual rights of those targeted by the predators operating in her state.

Bio:

  • Debby Salinas Valdez:   is a parent of a young adult born with multiple disabilities.  She is founder of Texas Adults w/Autism & IDD, a parent and advocacy support group in San Antonio, Texas. 
  • She teaches legislative advocacy to parents and adults with disabilities to advocate for change in their community, or at the state and national level. 
  • She is a member in several other local and state wide organizations and committees focused on supporting persons with disabilities.
  • As a civil rights activist she primarily remains focused on reforms to the guardianship laws in preserving and protecting the rights of persons with disabilities.
  • Became a member of GRADE- the Guardianship Reform Advocates for the Disabled & Elderly. 
  • Our mission is:  When families are torn apart we are the voices of those unseen and unheard.  My goal as a member of GRADE was to protect my daughter’s civil, human and Constitutional rights.
  • I wasn’t aware at the beginning that my efforts would eventually be about my rights as a Baby Boomer where the Guardianship Industry is also gearing up to take over our lives and our assets with little to no accountability, oversight or monitoring.  It has been within my experience that those who operate this industry are better protected that those Guardianship was created to protect.

Dr Sam Sugar joins us to talk about the progress of his group: Americans Against Abusive Probate Guardianships  

Board Certified Internal Medical Specialist, Dr. Sam Sugar wil be featured in an in-depth discussion on legislative refrom of the For Profit Guardianship system in Florida, the emergence of AAAPG and the medico-legal issues that often enable “The Rush to Guardianship”

“Sadly, as so many investigations have revealed, there exist in Florida a substantial number of abusive “Professional For Profit” guardians and lawyers who have manipulated the Guardianship system and repeatedly exploited their positions to loot the very estates they are sworn to protect.

It is not just elders who are vulnerable–anyone at any age–can be deemed “incapacitated” –even seemingly healthy independent adults–and become  ” A Ward of the State”

A powerful subgroup of For Profit  Guardians has used loopholes in the law and very weak Court moitoring to wreak terrible harm on Wards and their Families while they enrich themselves with exorbitant fees and horribly abusive tactics. 

Abusive Guardians twist and  subvert the laws giving them total power over the (allegedly) vulnerable in our society and instead of helping the frail among us,  use the power of the law to strip away precious Civil Rights and plunder estates, isolate families who get in the way, and in  the process destroy lives. They use the very laws intended to help people to destroy innocent people and their families.

Marcia Southwick will return to the show to give a summary of the state of New Mexico, adult legislations for 2013.  Marcia also publishes, Boomers Against Elder Abuse on Facebook.  This group is growing each day and heading towards 35,000 members.

In response to the exposure of the corruptive practices now being exposed in probate and family courts, many interested “stakeholders”……such as Guardianship associations, the BAR association, and many in the medical complex are leaning on state legislatures to expand their death grip on the elder community, and to make legal the theft of estates, the stripping of rights and the willful ignoring of standing state statutes meant to protect the victims from the predators.

Some of these new laws seem to heading backwards, but a few are good.

Issues are things like Due process, the role of guardian ad litem, Mediation, guardian background checks, guardianship financial authority, ward’s rights–etc. There are maybe 5 or so states to highlight, including New Mexico, Texas, Tennessee, Idaho, and Nevada.

In New Mexico, insanity has taken over.

Elder abuse: Monterey County Public Guardian denies right to attend hearings

January 27, 2014

The Monterey County Public Guardian seized control of San Francisco resident Margarita Zelada and her estate.  Since March 3013, Margarita has been unlawfully confined in Monterey County, forcibly isolated, and denied nearly all contact with loved ones and advocates.

The Public Guardian allows Margarita no contact with her daughter, occasional brief contact with her niece in Texas, no contact with elder rights advocates, and no contact with legal counsel of her choice.  The Public Guardian denies Margarita her right to attend court hearings on her case and denies her right to oppose the abuse she has suffered.

On January 29, 2014, the Monterey County Probate Court will review Margarita’s case and hear the Public Guardian’s petition for authority to forcibly administer chemical restraint. Niece Bonnie Lind repeatedly asked that Margarita be allowed to attend the hearing on her case and be allowed her right to oppose forced chemical restraint.

December 10, 2013

Jennifer Empasis and Chris Campbell,

I would like to request my aunt, Margarita Zelada be allowed to attend her conservatorship hearing scheduled for December 18, 2013.  According to the Notice of Conservatee’s Rights, Margarita has a right to take part in important decisions affecting her life, property and way of life.  Please do not deny her this basic right.

Aging Family Services’ cautions “the last thing you want is for them to end up in a nursing home.” Family never imagined the nightmare Theriault’s guardianship would bring.

Theriault immediately removed Hugh from his upscale home, isolated him from family, and chemically restrained him with the anti-psychotic drug Seroquel. Five months after being taken from home, Hugh was frail, bedridden, and incontinent. His legs and feet were covered with sores that would not heal.

Denied the personal care of a loving daughter, Hugh languished at The Covington. The facility advertises “truly affordable assisted living.” Our Parents website gives The Covington 2 out of 5 stars. Daughter Ginny Johnson called it, “NASTY. NASTY.”

Comparing The Covington to his time as a POW, Hugh said, “My German captors kept me better.” Meals were missed. Rooms were filthy. Hugh suffered 28 falls, a broken rib, and his partial plate was lost.

Theriault responded by moving Hugh to Blue Ridge Nursing Home. That facility lost its eligibility for federal funding and was assessed a $4,550-a-day civil penalty for 6-weeks in spring 2012.

Geriatric Care Manager Heather Joyner of Aging Family Services so neglected Hugh that she was removed from his case. Geriatric Adult Guardianship Social Worker Karen Johnson replaced Joyner. Ginny described both Joyner and Johnson as “so, so, so HATEFUL.” More

Linda Kincaid, MPH is nationally recognized as an authority on civil rights of the elderly and disabled.  She has presented training at conferences across the country.  At the Aging in America conference in March, Linda will present a 90-minute workshop on Isolation: Elder Abuse in Long-term Care.

Tonight, Linda will discuss two cases of elder abuse by Public Guardians in California.  ABC7 in San Francisco recently covered the story of Reta Cook, who fled the Santa Clara County to escape conservatorship.  Although Reta was no longer in the county, the Public Guardian continued deplete her assets for services that were not provided.  Listeners are encouraged to view the segment and post their comments to the story.

Linda will introduce listeners to the Margarita Zelada conservatorship in Monterey County.  While visiting her daughter in Pacific Grove, Margarita was forcibly taken from the daughter’s home and placed in a facility where she is allowed no visitors.

Advocates pointed out that false imprisonment and forced isolation are violations of Margarita’s civil rights.  The Public Guardian retaliated by going to court to strip Margarita’s right to have contact with advocates.

The Public Guardian recently filed a motion that could permanently strip Margarita’s right to have any contact with her daughter.  The motion appears to be retaliation for continued media coverage of the civil rights violations.

Our guest for this evening had to cancel at the last minute, so we will be covering some news on guardianship that has occurred over the last few weeks and will take a few calls.

Also:  News about a new ruling on those administrative appointee’s they want us to call “judge”.

We will be talking at some length about ABC News coverage, and the progress that has been made as a result of this coverage.

Note: I want to thank everyone for their kindness over these last few weeks.  Hopefully by this next week we will be up and running as usual.

____________________________________________________

Ohio, a state rife with probate abuses and predatory guardians, has another case you just cannot believe took place.  Between stolen property, funds and fraudulent POA’s, an elderly woman with Alzheimer’s was robbed of a million dollar estate.

Her daughter fought back.  The result?  The family home, built by the family,  on valuable shorefront property was intentionally reduced to rubble.  Even with the known threats that this would happen if the daughter didn’t back off, the courts and law enforcement did nothing.

Just goes to show you what a crooked attorney and an immoral probate can accomplish when no one holds them accountable.
