Philip Esformes has been indicted in Florida

Editors note: Your ProbateShark prays that this tragedy will spark renewed interest in  prosecuting the Florida Irving Faskowitz and the Chicago Alice R. Gore cases. Both estates were pillaged by criminal Esformes relatives and associates. FBI, please don't sit on your hands as the ghosts of Alice and Irving cry out for justice! Lucius Verenus, Schoolmaster,

I hope that this letter finds you and yours in the best of health and enjoying life.   I see that you are not giving up on running for mayor - I'd vote for you, but as a non-resident such would be too much in the Chicago style.

As you know I am still pushing the envelope and still looking into the Cabal's activities.   As every one has to be aware, Philip Esformes has been indicted in Florida for stealing a billion dollars from medicare and some other offenses.   He is (in my opinion) being feed a line of BS by his attorneys who apparently suggesting to him that they can by a bit of trickery get him off.   It appears that they placed a lawyer in an office at one of the nursing facilities.   When the FED raided the lawyers garbage was commingled with the records of the facility and got taken along with all the other papers.   The lawyers want to claim that attorney client privilege was invaded.    As the cabal uses a separate corporation for every act and covers themselves like a glove so as to avoid detection this ploy is going nowhere.   But with a stolen billion dollars in the till there is a strong incentive for the lawyers to become inventive.    Methinks if they gave Philip a candid assessment of his case and his chances he would ******.

Exactly how it is even possible to steal a billion dollars is mystery to me; however, apparently he has done exactly that.   How much have the rest of the cabal stolen????   I know all about the pharmaceutical scams and we both know about the utility fiascoes.     

In the Miami transactions the LARKIN HOSPITAL keeps popping up and is tied to Esformes.    The "operator" of the nursing home operation in which the ten patients died also is tied to LARKIN.    I wonder if this is tied to the Larkin facility in Kane County, Illinois that was alleged engaged in human trafficking.    It would be a co-incidence that the administrator of the Illinois Attorney Registration and Disciplinary Commission who characterized exposing corruption as being akin to yelling fire in a crowded theater has the Jerome Larkin.    My friend Harry (who you met) did not believe in co incidents!    

The latest on the nursing home is:

Officials shutter Fla. nursing home where 10 have died since Irma, citing ‘egregious’ misrepresentations

In an emergency order Wednesday, the Florida Agency for Healthcare Administration suspended the license of the nursing home in Hollywood, Fla., where 10 people have died in the aftermath of Hurricane Irma. The AHCA is investigating the facility.
The agency questioned the integrity of medical records for the deceased patients submitted by the home, saying that they contained falsehoods. The facility wrote late entries into medical records that made the situation appear much less dire than it was, the agency said.
While one patient was in the hospital with a temperature of over 108 degrees and suffering from cardiac arrest, for example, an unnamed facility nurse “made a late entry claiming a temperature of 101.6,” the order stated.
In one “egregious” case, it said, “a late entry was added that stated the patient was resting in bed with respirations even and unlabored.” But, it added, “this resident had already died before this entry was made.”
Local and state law enforcement are also conducting a criminal investigation into the nursing home.
A lawyer for the home did not respond to email messages seeking a response and calls to his office went unanswered.
“As more information has come to light on this egregious situation, this facility absolutely cannot continue to have access to patients,” AHCA secretary Justin Senior said in a news release. “This facility failed its residents multiple times throughout this horrifying ordeal.”
Hurricane Irma knocked out power across Florida, and disabled the generator powering the air conditioning at the Rehabilitation Center at Hollywood Hills on Sept. 10.
Even as temperatures soared into the 90s, it remained broken for several days, according to a news release from the nursing home. Portable air coolers and fans were placed throughout the facility instead.
The Florida Department of Health said that the facility “at no time” reported that its conditions had grown dangerous, according to The Washington Post. After an investigation, however, Hollywood city officials said “the facility was excessively hot.”
Though there was a hospital with working air conditioning across the street and many of the nursing home’s patients were in distress, “the trained medical professionals at the facility overwhelmingly delayed calling 911,” according to the news release from the AHCA.
As the nursing home grew hotter, its leadership also never contacted the Florida Emergency Operations Center to seek assistance with evacuation, according to court documents.
By the time the facility called authorities and transported its ailing residents to the hospital, some had body temperatures as high as 109.9 degrees — “far too late to be saved,” the news release stated.
Eight residents — Carolyn Eatherly, 78; Miguel Antonio Franco, 92; Estella Hendricks, 71; Betty Hibbard, 84; Manuel Mario Medieta, 96; Gail Nova, 71; Bobby Owens, 84; and Albertina Vega, 99 — died soon thereafter. Two more residents — 93-year-old Carlos Canal and 94-year-old Martha Murray — died this week.
“No amount of emergency preparedness could have prevented the gross medical and criminal recklessness that occurred at this facility,” Senior said.
The eight deaths last week made national headlines and caused many prominent politicians to speak out. Fla. Gov. Rick Scott (R) called the situation “unfathomable,” while Sen. Bill Nelson (D-Fla.) called it “inexcusable.”
“I am going to aggressively demand answers on how this tragic event took place,” Scott said in a statement last week. “Every facility that is charged with caring for patients must take every action and precaution to keep their patients safe — especially patients that are in poor health.”
The facility defended itself in the immediate aftermath, claiming it “diligently prepared for the impact of Hurricane Irma,” even as the state issued an emergency moratorium on the nursing home admitting new patients last Wednesday.
“Staff set up mobile cooling units and fans to cool the facility and continually checked on our residents’ well-being to ensure they were hydrated,” the nursing home’s administrator, Jorge Carballo, said in a news release. “We are devastated by these losses. We are fully cooperating with all authorities and regulators to assess what went wrong and to ensure our other residents are cared for.”
The facility, though, has a history of citations. Since 2010, violations were recorded on 23 different visits, according to The Post.
These included patients being left in their nightgowns and facing televisions that were turned off, while others were left unshaven and with untrimmed nails. Smoke alarms, emergency exits and the home’s emergency generator have all previously been reported for deficiencies as well.

Nursing home where 8 died in sweltering heat had poor record with state regulators

The Rehabilitation Center at Hollywood Hills, scene of eight deaths in the aftermath of Irma, has received below-average ratings from state regulators, and is affiliated with Larkin Community Hospital, which has a troubled regulatory history as well. Emily Michot The Miami Herald
