Are you an elder abuse victim who has filed a nursing home abuse complaint with a California regulator, law enforcement agency, or probate court?
- Have you filed an elder abuse complaint against a nursing home with a California licensing and regulatory agency, such as the California Department of Public Health’s (CDPH) Licensing and Certification Program, California Board of Registered Nursing (BRN), and the California Board of Vocational Nursing and Psychiatric Technicians (BVNPT)?
- Have you filed a well-substantiated criminal elder abuse report with your local police, district attorney, or California Attorney General Kamala Harris’ Bureau of Medi-Cal Fraud and Elder Abuse (BMFEA)?
- Have you filed an elder abuse claim in a California probate court, under California’s Elder Abuse and Dependent Adult Civil Protection Act, also known as the Elder Abuse Act or EADACPA (Welfare & Institutions Code § 15600 et seq.)?
Has the mishandling of your elder abuse complaint by apathetic, biased, or corrupt California government officials victimized you a second time?
- Did CDPH, BRN, or BVNPT investigators show obvious bias toward a wealthy, politically connected nursing home and then disregard or overlook overwhelming evidence you gave them substantiating your elder abuse complaint?
- Did local law enforcement or BMFEA prosecutors tell you that your elder abuse report was a civil or state licensing matter not rising to the level of a crime and then fail to prosecute and hold accountable a powerful nursing home for egregious criminal elder abuse?
- Did an apathetic or biased probate court judge fail to spend adequate time to read your court papers, continually postpone hearings, refuse to issue or enforce protective orders, refuse to hold a perpetrator defying court orders in contempt of court, abuse his or her discretion, or issue blatantly improper and erroneous rulings?
You are just one of many elder abuse victims who have been “victimized twice”
If officials from the California Department of Public Health, California Board of Registered Nursing, California Board of Vocational Nursing and Psychiatric Technicians, local law enforcement, Bureau of Medi-Cal Fraud and Elder Abuse, or the probate court have subjected you to any of the misconduct detailed on our website’s three misconduct sections (sec. 1, sec. 2, and sec. 3), you are not alone at Elder Abuse Exposed.com.
We’re an elder abuse advocacy and watchdog group that unites, empowers, and mobilizes
We’re a California-based, public-interest, elder abuse advocacy and watchdog group that unites, empowers, and mobilizes a network of informed citizens, elder advocates, government whistleblowers, demoralized law enforcement officers, and nursing home insiders.
Our multidisciplinary membership and growing network of associated members throughout the United States are committed to publicly exposing and reforming:
- The “seriously corrupted” and “broken” nursing home inspection and complaint investigation process, revealed by U.S. Senator Charles Grassley (R-Iowa).
- California law enforcement’s refusal to file criminal elder abuse charges against wealthy, politically connected nursing homes, as detailed in the April 2010 report Victimized Twice: Abuse of Nursing Home Residents, No Criminal Accountability for Perpetrators (PDF, 634 KB) by Disability Rights California (DRC), the federally mandated protection and advocacy agency for the State of California.
- The California probate court system in which many apathetic, biased, or corrupt judges abandon their sacred duty to protect vulnerable elder abuse victims and thereby directly and indirectly facilitate further physical, psychological, and financial elder abuse.
