Editorial Criticizes Lack of Information on DSS Website
A Contra Costa Times editorial criticizes the California Department of Social Services' website, saying that the site offers a list of long-term care facilities "but no useful or reliable information on the licensing status of each, much less the documentation on past violations." The editorial argues, "Fixing [the website] should not be hard," adding, "The biggest obstacle is not money; it's a will to get the job done. That seems to be lacking at the agency."
