Union Says State Medical Prison Facility Told Employees To Falsify Mental Health Crisis Unit Check-In Log
The California Association of Psychiatric Technicians says that two managers at the Stockton-based California Health Care Facility -- the nation's largest medical prison facility -- were told to falsify documents saying that they checked-in on patients in the mental health crisis unit five or more times per day, even when they were unable to do so. Steve Bassoff, an attorney for the union, said the group contacted the state Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation but officials "haven't responded."
