Default Hospice was told of me but never contacted me

My father ended hospice and I was never contacted even when my father had passed I was never contacted. Hospice was told of me but never contacted me -- Hospice allowed my dad's significant other to make his medical and afterlife decisions. Because of their neglect to get ahold of me my dad's quality of life was extremely poor and he was abused emotionally and physically.

Can I do anything legally now about this situation?

I wish to inform you that perhaps the only way to obtain monetary damages related to your father's elder abuse may be through a survival action. Elder abuse claims can be pursued both criminally and civilly. You may contact an attorney and seek guidance in this matter.

How is it that both hospice and the significant other ended up causing abuse?

That is a pretty well-watched area of medical care and it seems a few different people were all involved?

File a police report ASAP and they will at least look at the situation!
