Once high-flying nurse staffing agency files for bankruptcy reorganization
Sacramento Business Journal

Once one of Sacramento’s fastest-growing companies, Response 1 Medical Staffing Inc. has filed for bankruptcy reorganization. Legal documents list liabilities of $1.3 million and assets under $100,000.

Unlike another local nurse registry that filed for bankruptcy liquidation when hospitals and nursing homes cut staff during the recession, Response 1 hopes to stay in business. President Cheree Love said demand is strong. But struggling with an embezzlement and legal costs to deal with the matter, the company has a lien against receivables and could not grow without Chapter 11 bankruptcy reorganization, she said.
