CASTRO VALLEY, Calif. (AP) — Alameda County sheriff's detectives are conducting a criminal investigation into a nursing home that closed Thursday and left behind 14 sick and elderly patients.
Paramedics called to the Valley Manor Residential Care center in Castro Valley found a notice on the door from the state Department of Social Services ordering the site to be closed. The San Francisco Chronicle reports (http://bit.ly/1dyvplR ) that paramedics also found bedridden patients attended by a handful of staff members who stayed to help them, despite not being paid.
Sheriff's Sgt. J.D. Nelson said the staff members who stayed included a cook, janitor and a single caretaker who felt badly for the patients.
Nelson said investigators are trying to determine whether the state follows up after closing a facility.
The patients were transported to other homes.
