California’s Largest Nursing Home Operator Under Scrutiny From State, Federal Regulators
In the past year, several facilities operated by Brius Healthcare Services -- California's largest nursing home chain -- have become the targets of lawsuits, regulatory fines, police scrutiny, and state and federal investigations that have uncovered numerous alleged violations. Between October 2014 and January 2015, three of the nursing home chain's 81 facilities were decertified by the federal government. Brius' owner Shlomo Rechnitz has said regulators are singling out his facilities, but the state has denied such allegations.
