Kaiser is failing its mental healthcare patients
October 25th, 2014
In his new Huffington Post blog, NUHW President Sal Rosselli shows that Kaiser Permanente continues to violate state and federal laws governing mental health care services. The HMO may have finally coughed up the $4 million fine levied by the California Department of Managed Health Care more than a year ago, but Kaiser continues to deny its members timely access to psychiatric care.
Future installments of Rosselli’s blog will focus on healthcare and labor issues and the important work being done by members of the National Union of Healthcare Workers to improve standards for patient care, hold health care providers accountable to patients and workers, and improve working conditions for healthcare workers throughout the county.
