Negligence Stops San Francisco From Helping Mentally Ill.


The San Francisco Department of Public Health “decided to stop admitting people into a long-term care facility for mentally ill patients last year – and instead leave several beds empty every night – because officials said the facility was unsafe due to staff negligence and errors,” the San Francisco Chronicle reported September 11. “News of the problems comes amid heightened pressure for elected officials to address the swelling homeless and mentally ill population on San Francisco’s streets.”
