The provisions of the settlement between Sun Air Convalescent Hospital and Julita Gamalinda of Granada Hills require that the terms be kept secret, said Brian Yapko, one of Gamalinda's attorneys.

Los Angeles County officials are investigating allegations that Olive View- UCLA Medical Center staff accepted gifts from nursing home employees in exchange for placing Medi-Cal and Medicare patients at their facilities, a possible violation of the county's code of ethics, as well as state and federal anti-kickback laws. Three staff members at the county hospital in Sylmar — a clinical social worker and two medical case workers — have been accused of receiving gifts in exchange for referring Medi-Cal and Medicare patients to at least three local nursing homes, according to three county employees who asked not to be identified for fear of retaliation.

Lainer is hurting because many of her customers have low incomes and are reliant on Medi-Cal to pay for their pills.
