Re: “Elder Abuse Case Against Timber Ridge Yields $5 Million Verdict

The decision to provide care under license to an elderly client, whether for one or numerous residents, should not be made by many who nevertheless go ahead and make it. When taking that step, under a license issued by the State of California, they enter into an agreement as to what they must and will provide. In other words, it is a license that has conditions which are outlined in Health and Safety Codes (law) and enforceable regulation. If they fail to meet those conditions, they, as licensees, become financially vulnerable when litigation such as this occurs.

One condition is that they have both medical and functional assessments completed for potential new clients and have them updated as needed for those already in their care.

One condition is that they provide care and supervision as required through that previous assessment of their client's current or potential needs. If they are unable to meet those needs, they should not accept or retain that client. Residents diagnosed with dementia, particularly those showing a known propensity to wander or leave a facility, should not be left unsupervised.

One condition is that they assist their clients by providing the correct medication, to the correct person, in the correct dosage, and at the correct time it is prescribed to be given.

Problems regarding quality of care almost always trace back to cost-cutting efforts made by licensees.

This industry is not like opening a barbershop. A bad haircut can grow back. Mistakes made caring for a vulnerable at risk population can result in injury, death, and/or criminal charges. What do you, as a consumer, do if you are considering placing a loved one in a licensed care home? Drop by unexpectedly. Mealtime will tell a lot. Look around to see how many staff are on duty. Visit the ombudsman's office and read the state inspection reports. Make your choice regarding which care home to choose an informed decision and hope you've made a good one.

This facility also failed to make an appropriate and timely 911 call for a resident who was found unresponsive for "over an hour" and by the time medical personnel were called the resident passed. He was a "full code"....this statement made by the representative of TR is inaccurate - these records are public and can be viewed at the Community Care Licensing website.
