CRIMINAL INVESTIGATIONS | NURSING HOME BACKGROUND CHECKS | MEDICAL INVESTIGATIONS
PatRice Investigations is owned and operated by Patrice Gilgan, a licensed California private investigator who has gone through the difficulties of losing a father due to improper medical practices at a local Nursing Home. She was featured in a 2015 Episode of Al Jazeera: Drugging Dementia. Since the loss of her father, Gilgan has dedicated her time to ensure that other families do not go through the same hardships as those of her family.
Elder Abuse in California, and other states, has increased dramatically over the last decade. Experts believe that our health care infrastructure is not prepared to meet our upcoming elder care demands. Because of the high demand, various nursing homes have opened up to fill the gap in the market. Most of these homes go unregulated, and many practice unnecessary and dangerous practices that are hard to detect due to the lack of government funding to regulate these homes. Our elder abuse investigation services were designed to conduct background screening on nurses and care givers, identify the signs of elder abuse and neglect, detect citizen fraud issues, and prevent over medication and over sedation traumas.
At PatRice Investigations, we pay particular attention to medical abuse. This happens when patients are given Anti-psychotics to help “control” them. These drugs prevent the patients from walking and talking, and thus requiring “less care” because the patients are incapacitated. Their belief is that if a patient is “zonked out” they won’t have to be bothered by them.
Our goal is to ensure our client’s elder family members are placed under a more caring supervision and in homes that will protect their stay. If you feel that your family member is showing signs of abuse, or want to ensure the patient is going to the right caring facility, contact us today; our investigators will help you find a solution that you need.
‘The patient can’t walk anymore. The patient can’t talk anymore, and so there’s less care because basically the patient is incapacitated. They’re zonked out all the time, so you don’t have to be bothered with them.’
