If you currently have the power of attorney of the individual you may want to use it to request medical and nursing home records now, in case the person passes away and your authority under the power of attorney terminates. Then you can use the AVVO Find a Lawyer search tool to locate an experienced attorney who does nursing home abuse cases and make an appointment. They will want to review the records.

Yes. You may have a good case. I've handled many elder abuse cases in Los Angeles area. There are deadlines for such cases and you should speak with an attorney ASAP. Should there be a liability against the nursing home the patient may recover compensation for medical bills, pain and suffering as well as punitive damages.
