Los Angeles County unaware how many temporary healthcare workers lack background checks

Los Angeles Times, February 12, 2009

The acknowledgment came as the county suspended the contract for one of its largest providers of temporary healthcare professionals, a move made because the agency placed a convicted rapist at a large East Los Angeles health clinic.
