A former top executive with Tustin Hospital and Medical Center has agreed to plead guilty to paying illegal kickbacks for patients recruited from L.A.'s skid row, according to papers filed Tuesday in federal court in Los Angeles. Vincent Rubio, 49, was the hospital's chief financial officer when authorities raided the facility two years ago during an investigation into an alleged multimillion-dollar scheme to defraud Medicare and Medi-Cal. Authorities contended that the hospital recruited thousands of homeless people to undergo unnecessary medical tests and procedures.

An Orange County hospital that lost Medi-Cal funding for its pediatric skilled nursing center because of a death last year has been sanctioned again -- this time for transferring three children to distant medical facilities without consulting their parents. One of the children, a 2 1/2-year-old boy, died 16 days later in a North Hollywood facility before his mother -- who did not have a car -- was able to see him.

A skilled-nursing home at the Tustin Hospital and Medical Center has been fined $90,000 and given the state's most severe citation in the death last spring of a 7-year-old boy, state officials said Monday. "This is not common," Ken August, a spokesman for the California Department of Health Services, said of the AA citation issued to the medical center's skilled-nursing facility. "It's cited only when a facility, through its action or inaction, causes the death of a resident."
