FBI raids California nursing home – from the Sacramento Bee

The following is a link to a story by the Sacramento Bee about the FBI raid of a California nursing home over issues of alleged abuse. Click on the following link for the article, CLICK HERE.

The article provides relatively little detail; however, I did find the discussion about abuse reporting, or the lack thereof, interesting. I provided a talk about mandated reporters earlier this year for the Professional Fiduciary Association of California. Mandated elder abuse reporting is important, but you certainly do not see many discussions about it in the news. You can find the statutory reporting provisions at California Welfare & Institutions Code sections 15630-15632, pertaining to both physical and financial abuse, and for care provider and financial institution reporters.
