Bay Area Nursing Home Abuse
Elders who are abused or neglected at care facilities are often silent victims.
Conditions such as dementia or Alzheimer’s disease can prevent them from identifying their abusers or from remembering details about their abuse — even if the signs of abuse and neglect are obvious.
Attorney Felicia Curran understands that profit-driven management at many nursing homes, hospitals and senior care facilities contributes to negligent care. Instead of investing money in new equipment or better staff, these organizations may literally nickel-and-dime their elderly patients to death.
Through her practice at the Law Offices of Felicia C. Curran in Oakland, California, Ms. Curran works to provide a voice to voiceless victims of elder abuse and neglect throughout the Bay Area — bringing them justice, dignity and compensation for their damages.

If you believe your elderly loved one has suffered abuse or neglect at a care facility, it is important that you document it. If possible, you should photograph any evidence of physical abuse or neglect such as bruising, fractures, pressure sores, use of restraints or poor hygiene.
Further, you should obtain any pertinent medical records (or forensic records, if applicable) identifying an injury or other medical condition such as malnutrition, dehydration or infection.
If you have evidence of physical abuse, call the police. For other health-related concerns contact the California Department of Health Care Services, the California Department of Social Services and your local protective services authorities. When possible, obtain written and certified correspondence for future verification.
Just as importantly, however, you should call your attorney at the Law Offices of Felicia C. Curran to represent you.
