Nursing home neglect lawyersA 21-year-old nursing home employee faces a possible life sentence in connection with several egregious cases of alleged elder abuse. The man faces seven counts of elder abuse and one count of torture in a trial that began recently. If convicted on all counts, he could be sentenced to life in prison. He is accused of mistreating patients under his care in unimaginable ways. Prosecutors in the case cited several examples of alleged abuse including jumping on a mute woman’s chest and slamming her into a bed when she struggled, encouraging wheelchair-bound residents to fight, jumping from a dresser and planting both knees into the stomach of a man suffering from dementia and others.

Investigators claim that the man deliberately chose people who suffered from dementia because their condition would prevent them from alerting anyone to the abuse.

“He attacked the most vulnerable people you can possibly find,” Deputy Dist. Atty. Robin Allen told a Van Nuys jury. “He hit them and he laughed. This was sport.”

The alleged abuses occurred at Silverado Senior Living in Calabasas, a facility where residents and their families spend $70,000 or more each year for ongoing care.
