Universal Healthcare’s Reckless Neglect Of Emma Hill

Emma Hill was 78 years old at the time of her admission to Universal Healthcare on March 1, 2007. In her earlier years, Ms. Hill worked in personnel for various federal agencies and served in that capacity for several years in Vietnam during the Vietnam War. She loved to dance and she flew airplanes. Emma was a wonderfully warm, loving mother and grandmother.

For several years leading up to her admission at Universal, Ms. Hill lived in Florida with her son Randall and his wife. Unfortunately, as the years progressed, Emma became forgetful and she ultimately was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease.

Ms. Hill’s condition led her to wander and have episodes of incontinence, among other things. After her husband died, Ms. White concluded that her mother would be safest in an Alzheimer’s wing of a skilled nursing facility and she arranged for her mother’s admission to Universal on March 1, 2007. (See Part 2 of 20.)
