Los Angeles County suspends 16 King-Harbor clinic employees

Los Angeles Times, July 16, 2008

Los Angeles County officials have suspended 16 employees at Martin Luther King Jr.-Harbor Hospital's outpatient clinic after it was discovered that they had serious crimes in their past or had lied about their criminal history. Most of the hospital closed nearly a year ago after federal regulators determined that it did not meet minimum standards for patient care, but some outpatient services continue. County supervisors had blamed their own employees for many of the failures that led to the shutdown of emergency room and inpatient services.
