In October of this year, 14 sick and elderly patients were abandoned at a Castro Valley, California, assisted living facility. The Department of Social Services had ordered the Valley Manor Community Care Home closed due to deplorable conditions. Notice of closure was placed on the door of the home, and all but three staff members walked out, leaving the patients at the facility before they were transferred to other homes. After three days of trying their best to care for and transfer the abandoned patients, the remaining staff members called 911, and the police and paramedics responded. A criminal investigation is now ongoing.
