LA Nursing Home Makes Habit of Dumping Residents

The residents of Vernon Healthcare Center may be happy to say goodbye to 2019 after the facility spent much of the year getting citations for illegally dumping residents into inappropriate settings unfit to meet their care needs. At least three residents were sent to board and care homes while one was dumped into a hospital. At least two of the discharges were done without the resident’s physician’s approval. These citations are more evidence of the nursing home discharge crisis recently highlighted by NBC News.

There are four recent citations related to this facility. You can read their full text via the PDF’s below.
