Cal-OSHA Fines DMH for Safety Violations in Napa

Speaking on behalf of the Union of American Physicians and Dentists, UAPD President Dr. Stuart Bussey responded:  “We are pleased that OSHA has issued these fines against the Department of Mental Health, but frankly, it’s not enough.  $100,000 is peanuts compared to a life.  But we’re optimistic that these fines mean we’re on the road to making DMH facilities safe for staff and patients.  It’s a good first step.”
