    The bottom line is that no one, even VoC, is holding anyone accountable. This has allowed organized crime to take hold of the cash cow that is long term care in OC. The unscrupulous owners have been paying large sums to OC officials like Nguyen, Moorlach and Spitzer for years. Each patient’s care costs the county and state between $6 and $34 thousand per month. The county politicians look the other way as the computer system is rigged, and thefts are rampant. One chain was sued in federal court for the horrific, deadly lack of care. Now, an even worse owner has come in, with links to the Eastern Euro and Russian mobs, and no one says anything, except the Sacramento Bee. This area of healthcare is one that is unique. Illegal aliens can get free long term care. The very wealthy and the very poor can get this care, equally, and it is quickly becoming the most infested cesspool in all of healthcare. There are good providers, but they are being bought out by companies that hire untrained staff that have felony criminal records, and pay them lousy wages. If you, or someone you love, goes into long term care in OC, you are taking a horrible risk. When I found abuses at SSA, I spoke out. I found the scam and the way around it. I found the officials who were involved and who looked the other way, and when I was told to shut up and forget it, I refused. I lost my career for it. You could lose your life, if you put yourself into one of these deadly warehouses. Someone has to do something. The Grand Jury refused. The DA refused. Every official I begged for help refused. Some used their political clout to threaten me, to silence me, including Todd Spitzer, who did things he could be disbarred for. This is a huge threat, and if you want to see Obamacare overhauled, this is where it should begin…
