Cera and Henrie's last day with Hacienda HealthCare will be on March 29.

Last week, Kerri Masengale, the Hacienda Director of Specialized Therapy and Group Homes also resigned. In the letter, Masengale said that "previous personal experience" with Petrilli was the reason for the resignation. 

These departures now bring the total number of major resignations at the facility to 15.

Petrilli took over the role of CEO last week. 

On Hacienda HealthCare’s website, Petrilli was listed as a leader in the ICF unit, where a patient was raped and impregnated in December.

Given the large number of folks on the management team who are resigning or have already resigned, one has to assume that the place had too many comfie executives. Everyone knows these people were there to make money and when the time was right - slide into retirement. The underlings just wanted to hold onto their jobs so they kept quiet. Sad state of affairs, but all too common in facilities that care for the seriously impaired or ill. Unfortunately, there is an acute need for decent places for these folks.
