Clark County (Nevada) Leaders Hear More About Potential Abuse in Guardianship System
Clark County Commissioners are listening.
Today [May 5] they followed up with a promise to find out what can be done to better protect people who are deemed incompetent and become wards of the state.
District Court Chief Judge David Barker told commissioners he's also taking immediate action establishing a guardianship hotline to hear people's concerns.
The number for the guardianship hotline is (702) 671-4614.
And the Nevada Supreme Court is forming a high-level Guardianship Commission to look into problems.
Commissioner Steve Sisolak says the message for families who say they've been impacted by the system is clear. "We understand what their issues have been, issues that they raised, we're concerned about those. They've got our attention. It's been elevated to the highest level we can in the state of Nevada which is the Nevada Supreme Court to address those issues."
