Reporting Hospice Abuse

When someone has been abused or neglected in hospice care, it is paramount that the incident(s) does not go unreported. If you believe your loved one was/is a victim of hospice abuse, you should contact the SCDOA Long Term Care Ombudsman at 1-800-868-9095. You should also do what you can to document the abuse, such as by taking pictures or videos, asking those who can corroborate your claim for their contact information, and more. You should ensure you speak with a competent South Carolina hospice care abuse lawyer as well.

Statute of Limitations for Elder Abuse Cases in SC

Anyone who wants to report an instance of hospice care abuse and file a claim has three years to do so, according to South Carolina’s statute of limitations.
