BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (AP) — A doctor charged with drugging patients at a Kern County nursing home to keep them quiet has pleaded guilty to a felony.
Two other defendants face trial later this month.
Pormir was a staff physician at a Lake Isabella nursing home. State authorities contend that staff gave high and unnecessary doses of anti-psychotic drugs to eight elderly patients to keep them quiet and that some were forcibly injected. Three died.
