The California Department of Social Services revoked the residential care home license from Fair Oaks Care Home. The revocation comes after the family of a patient at the facility came forth with a hidden video demonstrating staff abusing the elderly patient.
- Fire code violations
- Improperly disposing dirty needles
- Forging prescription
- Dispensing expired prescriptions
Sadly, the abusive conditions in the video were not discovered until after the death of the woman at the facility. Though the woman’s death is still under investigation, an autopsy did determine that there were potentially toxic levels of narcotics in the woman’s system and the presence of other medications for which a physician never prescribed.
