If you are having problems with the care at a facility, you should report it to the nursing home administrator. The administrator is required to investigate and report it to the state agency. You can also contact the Department of Public Health or the County Long Term Care Ombudsman, both of which should be able to assist in an investigation. The contact information is provided with the admission paperwork. Finally, you can also contact an attorney to assist in the investigation. To begin, an attorney will want to gather all paperwork and records from the facility (including all admission documents), so if you can get those in advance it will greatly reduce the time to begin the investigation.See question

There are a number of special funds that have been set up due to disease and health conditions that resulted from mining. Figure out who your father worked for and Google the company and the cause of death and see what comes up. Also, call some lawyers in the city where your father was mining to see if they can help. Otherwise, filing a lawsuit is probably problematic at this point but you could always check with a local attorney.See question
