SF nursing home to stop rejections | New


SAN FRANCISCO — A city-run nursing home in San Francisco will stop discharging patients under a federally mandated closure plan after at least four patients died days or weeks after being transferred from Laguna Honda Hospital, officials said.

In April, the federal Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services halted payments to Laguna Honda after two patients had nonfatal overdoses at the facility in 2021, and California Department of Public Health inspectors said he was “in a state of substandard care.”
