County, nursing home settle scalding lawsuit

California

San Mateo, CA - Three years after a mentally disabled woman was scalded nearly to death in a Redwood City nursing home, San Mateo County has settled a lawsuit with the facility and its employees.

The resolution came May 13, one day after the county was set to square off in court with Res-Care and employees, including Oretha Ocansey who was criminally convicted for her role in the severe burning of Theresa Rodriguez in May 2004.

The county, which is Rodriguez’s legal guardian, sought both punitive and actual damages for Rodriguez who was left so badly injured her hospital care costs $3,000 a day.
