(AP) — Intensive care nurse Meynard Villa was on the verge of losing his family’s $150,000 investment in his new senior care home because he couldn’t hire workers while grappling with a glitchy state system designed to automate criminal background checks. The California Department of Social Services’ new portal is supposed to help home and community care providers, foster care families and even nannies and babysitters who apply for clearance under the state’s background check system.
