$2.2 Million Settlement

McKnight’s reported on the $2.2 million settlement with patients who suffered abuse at Laguna Honda Hospital & Rehabilitation Center in San Francisco.

A 2019 California Department of Public Health investigation had confirmed multiple claims of patient abuse by six former nurses there. A 2021 lawsuit accused those nurses of taking nude photos of residents and other offenses between 2016 and 2019.

The San Francisco Board of Supervisors’ Government Audit and Oversight Committee approved the settlement for 11 older residents at the nation’s largest publicly run nursing home.

CMS agreed to let the 769-bed SNF continue participating in both Medicare and Medicaid…for now.  They need to close the place. Sounds horrible.
