Here's a good story of justice and great work by San Diego lawyer Craig Miller.  Lawyer's for nursing home victims have always believed that the nursing homes were notified when an "unannounced" visit by the Department of Public Health was about to occur so it could prepare and but on its best face.  In this case, when DPH arrived, the staff was instructed to announce repeatedly over the loud speaker "Simon line 9." Of course, there was no "Simon." It was just a warning call to others that DPH was in the building.

Never let the facts get in the way of sustaining an unjust law (that grows more unjust by the year).  Vote Yes on Prop 46.

“It’s like the wild west,” said attorney Randy Walton. “Whether it happens in a nursing home or residential care facility, neglect is still neglect.” Walton has handled about 100 nursing home abuse cases in the past 15 years, with 12 heard in San Bernardino County. His typical case is a fall that could have been prevented. “After falling, the patient doesn’t always get the proper attention. A fracture turns into an infection and the patient can die,” says Walton, who is based in San Diego.

Walton said that nursing home officials act under the jurisdiction of an attending physician. Walton agreed that it’s easier to care for a bedridden patient but “chemical restraint” is a major offense. He says that more inspectors are desperately needed to provide more oversight of community health care facilities. “I don’t think there’s been that much improvement of community care facilities. But in the last 10 years, there are more people watching. I think their conscience has been shocked. People are starting to pay attention. I haven’t seen that before.”

Leslie was driving her son’s carpool home from middle school when a driver traveling the opposite direction fell asleep at the wheel and swerved through the medium, striking several trees and eventually their car. Leslie’s son was injured by a large tree limb that pierced their windshield. He broke his hand and had several lacerations to his face and head. After the insurance company offered a minimal settlement, Walton Law Firm advised the family to refuse the offer, and filed a lawsuit on their behalf. A few months later the case settled for more than six times the amount offered pre-litigation.

Most people think of doctors in the office or hospital when it comes to medical malpractice. But what happens when medical negligence occurs in the locker room or club house.  We may find out in this case involving Junior Seau.
