12 Residents Die from COVID-19 in California Nursing Home

The facility has reportedly “been cited three times by state health regulators – in June, July and August – for failing to report COVID-19 survey data,” which may explain why the outbreak was not responded to correctly. The lack of reporting “resulted in incomplete data reported to the (state) necessary to respond to the COVID-19 outbreak,” and “had the potential to compromise residents’ health and safety,” as officials could not intervene without a true understanding of the number of cases.
