Lakeview Terrace Settles Wrongful Discharge Case for $600,000.


Los Angeles City Attorney Mike Feuer announced this week that Lakeview Terrace, an L.A. nursing home, has agreed to pay $600,000 for fines and services to settle a case alleging unlawful and unsafe discharge of residents. The settlement terms require the facility to assist homeless residents find safe and suitable placement and services when they no longer need nursing home care. The settlement even includes modest funds to pay residents' housing costs for those who do not have appropriate housing available. Congratulations to the L.A. City Attorney and his staff, who have successfully fought against resident and patient dumping for the last several years.
