I would suggest if any of you are being abused by your dialysis clinic, that you take a recorder of some type to record the abuse and then take the recording to the local prosecutor. In most states, this action is legal. However, it is not legal in some states, check with a local health care attorney or criminal attorney. Most attorneys will write a letter for around a fee of $50 or they will give a free first appointment. Many times, the actions of the dialysis industry, if taken place in a domestic relationship, would result in fines and jail time. No, the social worker is there to collect money for the company, they are not there to help you deal with an abuser. Yes, I do have personal experience with that issue and that is one of the reasons why Davita was fired by me. I am happy to help anyone of you deal with an abusive dialysis clinic, I have worn the badge. I would be happy to speak with any local law enforcement or prosecutor about abuse in dialysis clinics on your behalf. If anyone is curious, witness intimidation in a criminal case, is a FELONY. The courts do not take too kindly to witness intimidation or contempt of court. It is time for these abusers to see the inside of a county jail or state penitentiary.
- Jail is where the offender will be temporarily detained prior to receiving the final verdict of his case. It is also where offenders of minor crimes are placed. Most detainees are those who will serve detention for less than a year.
ND: This means they have committed a misdemeanor, meaning M1-M5.
Penitentiary is a detention unit for more serious type of offenders. It is also a place where reformatory discipline and or punishment is done. ND: This means they have committed felonies.
Jail is synonymous to shorter detention whereas penitentiary suggests longer detention.
Jail is maintained by smaller jurisdiction units like counties and cities while penitentiaries are maintained by the state or the federal government.
Jails have fewer amenities and are also smaller in size compared to penitentiaries.
Someone who has been found guilty of witness intimidation would be sent to a jail such as
Lebanon Correctional Institution in Lebanon, Ohio. They will have no freedom and they will be subject to search and roll call, 24/7. These places are He!! on earth. So, I would suggest if some of these workers know what is good for them, they will not abuse dialysis patients.
