Patrice Gilgan joins us this evening to expose the abuse and drugging of her father at the hands of doctors and nursing home workers in two different facilities in Orange County, California. The first instance of abuse both physical and with drugs occured at Irvine Cottage Board and Care where Gerald had been sent to recover from brain surgery. Gerald was drugged within 24 hours of admittance to the home with massive doses of Haldol, Seroqel and overdosed on morphine. There was no prescription for the morphine. Cottage Board and Care is operated by St Joseph Hospice, a Catholic enterprise.
At a second facility, Villa Valencia Skilled Nursing, (a St Michael Hospice and another Catholic owned enterprise), Gerald was given 7 different drugs. None of these drugs were to be used on brain injured or individuals suffering from dementia. When Gerald was finally freed from this facility and hospitalized again, it took more than two weeks for him to respond due to the massive drug overload in his system.
Videos of Gerald, and of some of the abuse he endured are available on the you tube channel; Ireland Dallas
Gerald Gilgan was a retired New York City Fire Fighter. This man did not deserve this callous treatment. No one does. Yet it happens to the elderly every day here in the US.

Do you know the difference between nursing homes and assisted living? Here is how to assess the difference for people with dementia and people needing long-term care.
Hosted By Marti Oakley & Debbie Dahmer
Guest is: Gina - Advocate for patient rights in skilled nursing facility.
Will be discussing SB 1362 -Bill to Amend SS & SB 670 Nursing Home Litigation first half hour of show.
In 2010. Gina's significant other of 21 years passed away from ovarian cancer and Gina wound up homeless and in great medical need. Gina went through several major surgeries then placed in a Skilled Nursing Facility where her life was saved. Gina was moved from one facility to the one she is in now from 2011.
Gina was appointed Vice President of the Residents Council then voted President of the Resident Council and found herself fighting the powers that be for the residents rights. She began studying the medicaid/medicare laws and rights provided for the residential care in these facilities.
Since then Gina have become increasingly aware of how the nursing homes target these elderly patients from the doctor to the judges that abuse the guardianship program for their own gain. Gina's intention is to spend the rest of her life helping those targeted by these guardian programs that allow doctors to claim someone incapacitated, and lawyers that go behind the backs of friends and family and judges that grant for profit guardianship and complete control over others lives without telling them.
2015- June. Gina read Marisa Conover's story regarding her mother and reached out to her. She then hooked me up with TS radio. Marti Oakley and Debbie Dahmer had Gina as one of the Guests on World Elder Abuse Awareness Day -June 15th, 2015 On TS Radio.
