Review for Foundation Aiding the Elderly, Sacramento, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My name is Rick Tobin and I am a seasoned emergency manager with substantial experience in testing medical and healthcare facilities of every kind, from three-bed mom and pop's to some of the country's largest hospital systems for the JCAHO/Commission and other state licensing authorities. I've also had substantial personal experiences with hospital care for myself and my family in the last twenty years.

I found the work of Foundation Aiding the Elderly as both ground breaking and essential to the continued oversight for the public's advocacy, often against powerful organizations that unduly influence government oversight authorities. It should come as no shock to anyone reading this that our healthcare system is faltering. In that state of chaos, it is essential that all of us have a champion who is not influenced by political whims. There simply are too few who can keep our loved ones and ourselves safe from the shortcuts and inefficiencies taken by some providers in the system...those who have profits as a priority, and not the concerns for healthy outcome for patients.

I have watched the workmanship and character of FATE for over twenty years. I have seen them seek out justice for families that were left in shambles by maniacal behavior of providers. Their efforts to clean up these iniquities pushes the entire system to improve and be on notice that felonious behavior can no longer be swept under the rug as a simple medical misadventure.

FATE's record certainly does not need my accolades, as they are beloved by thousands of families across the country and touted as 'best in class' for non-profits that perform above and beyond their mission. I have worked with hundreds of non-profits across the country during disasters, and served on boards of several non-profits, including at the national level. I can think of organizations who came anywhere near the service and tenacity of FATE in protecting those most vulnerable and defenseless.
