Los Angeles County supervisors refuse to provide details on King-Harbor workers
Los Angeles County supervisors still refuse to release details about 17 employees who worked at Martin Luther King Jr.-Harbor Hospital despite having serious criminal histories or lying about their records. After 16 of the workers were suspended, Supervisor Yvonne B. Burke said one of the employees had been convicted of rape. But neither the supervisors nor county health officials would address questions that might indicate whether patients were injured or placed at risk by the employees. Most of the public hospital closed after federal regulators determined that it did not meet minimum standards for patient care, but some outpatient clinic services continue. More than 700 employees remain at the site.
