Professional conflicts occur when guardians or conservators receive referrals from their preferred or standardized network attorneys as well as state licensed LSW workers whom work within health care facilities or hospitals. This would include estate planning attorneys who are are part of these referral networks whom may be helping the primary caregiver conceal materiel facts in Discovery or other state regulated vulnerable person violations. The problem is substantially compounded when Center for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) funded hospitals employ LSW patient advocates whom also run side G-C court visitor companies and refer elderly protective clients to specif estate planning/elder law attorneys or particular G-C companies or elder care facilities.
Moreover, if any of these businesses are the probate courts go to or default solution their is incentive to provide repeating referrals and even cover-ups of abuse, exploitation or negligence thereby in violation of Federal Acts and State mandatory reporting Statutes. Since many of these geriatric service providers are paid from the same elderly persons estate they are incentivized to protect one another and conceal materiel facts of abuse, negligence or exploitation. Some may even assist in concealing materiel facts in court reports, evaluations and tactically time civil procedure reporting that fail to meet Court statutory deadlines. When the probate court appoints these officers of the Court their failure to disclose conflicts and materiel facts taint the judicial machinery to the point of fraud upon the court and jeopardize the life of the elderly person. When these circumstances repeatedly occur an organized criminal enterprise may be involved. Like Judges, even culpable for-profit guardians & conservators almost always have criminal immunity. The more evidence the legitimate protector’s of the vulnerable person discovers on those professionals being paid from the elder’s estate, the more the predatory networks band together to protect one another.

“Trusted persons become trust violators when they conceive of themselves as having a financial problem which is non-shareable, are aware this problem can be secretly resolved by violation of the position of financial trust, and are able to apply to their own conduct in that situation verbalizations which enable them to adjust their conceptions of themselves as trusted persons with their conceptions of themselves as users of the entrusted funds or property.” 1
