    During Nguyen’s tenure, she got large donations from nursing home providers, and looked the other way on massive fraud, embezzlement and abuse of patients, including the death of an 87 year old woman because untrained, underpaid staff dropped her on her head. Of course these people are hot to get on the gravy train! Janet had her million dollar slush fund that she never had to explain, and the corruption will continue, because Mike Ryan helped cover up the embezzlement for years. You should see his lame emails, trying to side step all of it. Puh-leeze. MediCal through nursing homes is a multi BILLION dollar industry, at 7 to 27 thou a month, and it is one of the few types of MC that illegals can get. The money rolls into the pockets of the politicos, because they rigged CalWin so that nursing homes have multiple billing numbers. They can bill the state two, three times, and no one will catch it. What a joke.

      Has there been any significant state or federal oversight with any of these problems? The complaint process does not seem to do much for the patients.

        As a caseworker for the county social services, I went to the state investigators, to the attorney general and to the feds, all after going to the grand jury, the district attorney and the board of supervisors. Even with the proof of wrongdoing, none of them were willing to rat out their compadres. They all will protect each other, because they all have dirt on each other.

    What a tight little group sitting on 3 BILLION annually? No one from the public applied? When was the notice given…at 12:00 am and closed 10 minutes later like a lot of County Scams?

    There isn’t ONE Health Care – student activist out there? Hello? 3 Billion – like with a B is being so mismanaged it is an ongoing crisis?

    I vote NO – on the health care lawyer and the double dipper. They do not represent the public.

      They terrorize any employee who dares to bring the fraud to light. Do you really think they want some young thing with morals and principals to get a look into their cesspool? Never gonna happen. They have to bring in people just as filthy as they are, or the whole mess goes to the dogs.

    Janet Nguyen is a one woman wrecking ball.

      To be fair she got handed a mess (to finish off?) and there was a lot of developing and existing problems before. More past supervisors and county staff need to get the credit for that. 😉
