What Happens If You Hurt Yourself on the Queen Mary?

By Joseph Low on July 12, 2019 - Comments off

The RMS Queen Mary had a long and rich history as a premiere North Atlantic Ocean liner for more than 30 years. Since 1967, she’s been moored at Long Beach harbor in Long Beach, California. Since then, she’s become a popular tourist attraction, event space, and even a hotel! When the Queen Mary was purchased by the City of Long Beach, the ship underwent several renovations and changes to make the experience more appealing and accommodating for visitors.

Thankfully, the Queen Mary wasn’t planning on going anywhere anytime soon. Read the rest »

What Should I Look for If I Suspect Nursing Home Abuse?

By Joseph Low on April 14, 2017 - Comments off

Elderly woman- Nursing home (4)When we entrust elderly family members to nursing homes, we expect them to be treated properly. Fortunately, most California nursing homes are places where our elders are given respect and taken care of. There are some tragic exceptions to this, though, so it is always a good idea to be aware of signs of abuse and to act on any suspicions or concerns you have.

Physical Signs

Many indications of abuse at nursing homes are physical things that you can observe during a visit with a loved one. Look for bruises or infections that seem sudden or do not have an immediate explanation. Some injuries can occur naturally, and when promptly taken care of do not present a serious threat.
