Certified care does not mean qualified care

“Certification” is not the same as “Licensed”

Family members must be diligent

Don’t assume anything.  The “system” isn’t working for you

REGISTERED NURSE

PSYCHOLOGIST

ATTORNEY AT LAW

 

These PROFESSIONS are important for the care of the wards of any government agency.  Neither Buchanan nor Burkhalter are bound by any professional ethics or standards of conduct as are licensed professionals

Where will your loved one end up?

Who will be there when they fall?

Why did they Fall?

Will your accountant find waste, unnecessary expenses, over charges or payments to the guardian’s or county’s  “friendly” providers?

 

NEVADA NRS’s ALLOW THE GUARDIAN A FULL YEAR TO SQUANDER AWAY VALUABLE ASSETS BEFORE THEY MUST PROVIDE A FINANCIAL REPORT TO THE FAMILY OR THE EXECUTOR OF AN ESTATE.

Nevada Licensing Requirements

Plumbers, Electricians, Carpenters and beauticians require state licenses in Nevada.  Contractors, accountants, hair dressers and a host of other occupations require state licensing but NOT public guardians.

Quality of Care Issues

There is reason to be concerned when it comes to proper care of elderly wards of the county.  States require that Psychologists possess at minimum a Master of Science Degree to practice.  Guardians have no such requirement.

CENTER FOR GUARDIANSHIP CERTIFICATION

 

The Center for Guardianship Certification (CGC), is affiliated with the National Guardianship Association (NGA).  Both are privately owned and operated organizations whose purpose is to maximize their own profits and to promote their industry.  

 

Neither organization has governmental oversight or regulation.  CGC revenues are generated through their academic courses and issuance of licenses which require regularly scheduled renewals.  It is in their financial interest to have as many certified guardians as possible and to upgrade them from one level to another and to require payment of regularly scheduled renewal fees.

 

In Nevada, Guardians, whether a “Certified Guardian” a “National Certified Guardian” or a “National Master Guardian” are not required to have colleges degrees or licensing in any of the above disciplines.  

 

All Guardians should be closely monitored by the ward’s family and/or estate trustee.  There is no assurance that they are fully qualified to perform all of the required duties or to properly deal with the emotional, medical and financial needs of the elderly.

Nevada Revised Statutes (NRS’s) Title 13, Chapter 159

Guardianships

Note: Kathleen A. Buchanan, Rachael M. Burkhalter, Lee A. Drizin and Clark County bureaucrats interpret Nevada Revised Statutes (Code of Law) as they see fit.  The local police force is not educated with regard to Guardianship issues and simply enforce what Buchanan, Burkhalter and Drizin tell them to, including engaging in FALSE IMPRISONMENT including violation of the FOURTH and EIGHTH AMENDMENTS TO THE U.S. CONSTITUTION.

 

Provisions in the NRS can and should be challenged in Court.
