She died in Riverside County, but LA County is her conservator. LA had sent her to a hospital out of county. It caused so much confusion they didn't know where she was. When she was found still at the hosp. she died at, the hosp. and LA offered to cover cremation fees by a private mortuary. I said okay. Signed a paper to okay cremation that took them two more weeks to get to me and now it's a month and I still don't have her remains. I'm a wreck. How do you misplace a body?
Contact a lawyer asap, as the claims are going to be against public entities (the county, public guardian, possibly the hospital). There are special time reqts when going after them. This is a case falling into the category of cases where you can sue for pure emotional distress. See a doctor and or therapist for appropriate counseling and or medication.
