More workers at Los Angeles hospital have criminal backgrounds

Los Angeles Times, September 9, 2008

More than 10% of employees of the Los Angeles-based Martin Luther King Jr.-Harbor Hospital had criminal histories, according to a long-awaited analysis that also found the King nurses provided inferior care. The hospital had about 1,600 employees when background checks were conducted a year ago, according to the report by the auditor-controller's department. Of those, 1,356 had their backgrounds examined, and 152 of those came back with criminal or arrest records. The number is far larger than the 17 employees with criminal histories that Los Angeles County has previously acknowledged.
