ACCUSATIONS ARE MOUNTING AGAINST SHLOMO RECHNITZ
LostMessiah and its contributors: May 19, 2016
Shlomo Rechnitz and his conglomeration of companies owns 1 in 14 nursing home and rehabilitation center beds in the State of California. He has been accused of every manner of abuses, cutting corners, over-sedating the patients entrusted in his care, and understaffing his facilities.
In articles and online sites, he has been referred to as the great “philanthropist” which this site has come to accept is a word largely synonymous with “shady businessmen” putting it politely or “ganevim” (thieves) if we want to call a spade a spade. In our view, there seems to be some misguided belief that if the world believes you to be a great donor, that same world will either close its eyes to or refuse to believe you are at the same time guilty of wrongdoing. We perceive Shlomo Rechnitz to epitomize this philosophy.
Given the sheer volume of articles and cases on Shlomo Rechnitz and his nursing facilities, we can only wonder why the State of California has not intervened, the courts have not taken a second look and the various state medical facility licensing boards have not removed licenses. Certainly it cannot look like a duck, smell like a duck and be instead a kitten; perhaps in this case a piranha?
We believe that Shlomo Rechnitz has acted with impunity for years by and through his nursing homes and related businesses, and it might be about time that someone look at the volume of information more carefully. From our perspective, the evidence against Rechnitz and his facilities is voluminous and difficult to ignore, and it continues to mount.
We leave it to the governmental authorities to draw the appropriate conclusions. We have our view on the subject, which follows below and we now leave it to our readership.
FROM OUR PERSPECTIVE, THE REAL QUESTIONS HERE ARE:
1) IS SHLOMO RECHNITZ A MURDERER FOR KILLING HIS PATIENTS?
2) IS SHLOMO RECHNITZ A THIEF FOR TAKING HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS OF DOLLARS AND NOT USING IT FOR ITS INTENDED PURPOSE BUT FOR HIS OWN PERSONAL USE?
3) HOW MUCH MORE INFORMATION TO AUTHORITIES NEED TO BEGIN TO TAKE RECHNITZ AND HIS FACILITIES TO TASK FOR ALLEGED CRIMES AND ABUSES, SOME OF WHICH HAVE BEEN PROVEN CIVILLY, IF NOT CRIMINALLY?

Report: Haredi Mega Donor Shlomo Rechnitz Hides Ownership Of Troubled Nursing Homes – But Does He, Really?
Shlomo Rechnitz is the largest nursing-home owner in California with about 75 facilities. Rechnitz’s homes have been the target of more complaints and federal deficiencies per bed than most other large chains in California, and Rechnitz sets up his corporate structure to hide who the homes’ actual owner – Rechnitz – actually is. Update – But so do other nursing homes not owned by Rechnitz, and Rechnitz takes over troubled, failing nursing homes with many deficiencies and tries to fix them, which likely accounts for the large number of deficiencies his homes have.
