Final Settlement Announced in State and Counties Suit Against Mariner

On March 19, Attorney General Bonta announced a settlement in the State’s and several counties’ case against Mariner Health Care, Inc., which runs 19 nursing homes in California.  The case alleged that Mariner nursing homes lacked adequate staffing and thus neglected their residents’ care needs and inflated their federal five-star ratings. The settlement assures Mariner nursing homes will be monitored by an independent monitor for up to three years to ensure the facilities have adequate staffing, do not engage in illegal resident evictions, do not inflate their 5-star rating, and report all instances of suspected abuse and neglect.
