Los Angeles County unaware how many temporary healthcare workers lack background checks
Los Angeles County officials said that they do not know how many of the 2,000 temporary workers serving patients at county hospitals and clinics each month are working without a criminal background check. 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.
