The legal guardian of a non-communicative nursing home resident has sued over a diamond bracelet that vanished from a California facility's safe.
Debra Cahill filed a case in August alleging Rancho Mirage Health and Rehabilitation Center was guilty of negligence and elder abuse by failure to guard the $100,000 bracelet. A receipt obtained by The Desert Sun showed the bracelet, which belonged to resident Patricia Moss, was put into the safe in November 2014, and was either lost or stolen afterwards.
Cahill's attorney said the bracelet, which was bought for $37,000 almost a decade ago, is now worth $106,000, according to a recent reappraisal. The center is roughly 30 minutes southeast from Palm Springs, CA.
