STATE DENIES LICENSE FOR BAKERSFIELD WOMAN TO OPERATE RESIDENTIAL CARE FACILITY FOR ELDERLY

 SACRAMENTO, Calif., April 5 /PRNewswire/ -- The California Department of Social Services (CDSS) said today that it has denied the license application of Ada Hammons, Bakersfield, to operate a residential care home for the elderly as a result of charges she had operated a facility which was not properly maintained, had inadequate space for clients and was not properly licensed.
 "Most residential care homes in California are loving, supportive environments for people who are not able to remain at home," said Eloise Anderson, director of the department. "However, when we find care home operators who are abusive or neglectful in caring for clients, it's essential we protect these very vulnerable individuals by closing down the facilities."
 The revocation action became effective March 15, 1993. Hammons did not elect to ask for a hearing on the revocation action. The facility, known as Norris Land Care Facility, was located at 7112 Norris Rd., Bakersfield.
 Residential care homes for the elderly provide non-medical care and supervision for individuals who need out-of-home care. The homes are licensed through the department's Community Care Licensing Division, in accordance with the state's Health and Safety Code.
