March 11, 2014 (San Diego)--In response to a media report exposing abuse in elder care facilities locally, Supervisors voted to strengthen protections for elderly patients and their families.

These standards include the ability of the District Attorney to look at complaints more closely. In addition, the County will create a system for patient’s families to compare ratings of facilities countywide.
