The owner of California's largest nursing home chain is facing more scrutiny.
The Sacramento Bee reports the FBI served search warrants Thursday at a Riverside nursing home owned by Shlomo Rechnitz, a Los Angeles entrepreneur and philanthropist.
FBI spokeswoman Laura Eimiller declined to comment on the nature of the federal probe because the affidavit in support of the warrants is under seal. She said patients were not affected by the raid at Alta Vista Healthcare and Wellness Centre.
A spokeswoman for Rechnitz said he and his company was cooperating with authorities and had no reason to believe the investigation has anything to do with patient care.
Rechnitz's facilities have been the target of police scrutiny, lawsuits, stiff regulatory fines and state and federal investigations that have uncovered numerous alleged violations.
