Stockton nursing home blamed for death of resident

STOCKTON, Calif. (AP) - A Stockton nursing home must pay a $100,000 fine after a state investigation concluded that inadequate care led to the death of a resident.

The California Department of Public Health said Friday it gave Creekside Care Center a "AA" citation, the most severe penalty under law.

According to its website, Creekside is a skilled nursing and rehabilitation facility.

State investigators found that in 2008 Creekside attendants failed to monitor an injured patient and failed to tell the patient's doctor about changes in the patient's condition, which turned fatal.

Judy Treloar, administrator for parent company Sunbridge Healthcare, says the company is contesting the citation. She declined further comment.

State fines range from $100 for Class B violations to a maximum $100,000 for more serious AA violations.


Back to School shopping [Guest Post]

Back to School shopping [Guest Post]

Hi everyone! My name is Hope and I write the blog Hope and the Dress Code. I’m a school counselor and work in a district that with a dress code more like a corporation, less like a typical school.

Ok on to why I’m here: It’s almost time to go BACK TO SCHOOL shopping!! This is one of my favorite times of the year because it gives me free reign to go crazy-shopping with no guilt!! Totally kidding of course, I’m definitely working within a budget, but it does give me a set time of year to reevaluate pieces I need/want in my closet. Whether you work in education or not, this is a great time to add some new pieces to your work wardrobe.

My DREAM back to school shopping list is a mix of current trends and more classic pieces:

1. Mid-length skirt

Budget cuts create security concerns at Stockton schools

STOCKTON, CA - Stockton school officials are concerned over a reduction in on-campus security when violence is rising in the city. The distress comes on the heels of an unsolved shooting at a Stockton student's birthday party a matter of days before the school year begins.

Budget constraints forced Stockton's public high schools to cut back on campus security and school representatives have been forced to improvise to keep their students safe.

Administrators and teachers now make security rounds and eat lunch in the cafeteria with students, rather than taking their break in the teacher's lounge. The non-profit group, El Concilio, has also volunteered members to support campus security efforts.

Spice up workplace outfits with color [Guest Post]

I'm Kileen from cute and little and I couldn't be happier to guest post for Angeline as she moves across the country {how exciting, right?}!  I love Angeline's blog and how she shows wearable work-appropriate fashion for all of us 9-to-5ers out there.  In keeping with her theme, I wanted to share some tips on how I spice up my everyday workplace outfits with some color.  Dressing for the office doesn't have to mean greys, blacks, and beiges anymore.

117 arrested in Stockton crime sweep

STOCKTON, CA - A four-day sweep in the Stockton area to combat increasing crime and gang activity resulted in the arrests of 117 criminals and confiscation of 15 firearms, methamphetamine and crack, say law enforcement authorities.

Among the arrests were four suspects wanted for murder, three for attempted murder and two for robbery and kidnapping.

Officers seized "magazines for automatic handguns, and so forth. So these are some pretty, uh, pretty scary weapons and it's nice to know they're out of those hands and in our hands now," said Stockton Police Department spokesman Officer Pete Smith.
