San Francisco Elder Abuse Attorneys
Was your disabled or elderly loved one abused?
The decision to move an elderly or disabled loved one into a skilled treatment
facility can be difficult for anyone. This choice is usually made after
the family determines that the home environment does not provide the care,
treatment, and safety that the individual deserves. It would then be gut-wrenching
to learn that thousands of vulnerable, elderly, and disabled residents
of skilled facilities suffer from nursing home abuse and neglect every year.

care facility – or if you have reason to suspect as much –
you need to contact our team of professional
medical malpractice and elder law attorneys at Rouda Feder Tietjen & McGuinn right away. We have

occurs, such as:
