Records Reveal Abuse, Neglect Led to 13 Deaths in California Centers

State-run homes for the developmentally disabled have been directly responsible for 13 deaths of patients since 2002, according to records from the California Department of Public Health.

The documents obtained by the Center for Investigative Reporting show abuse, lack of supervision and neglect led to the deaths in the homes, which provide services for men and women with serious cases of autism, cerebral palsy and other disabilities.
