$32 Million Settlement Ensues Lawsuit Against Nursing Home Chain

A nursing home chain has decided to settle a lawsuit in the amount of $32 million. The lawsuit comes after a federal investigation led by the attorney general. The chain was alleged to have requested reimbursements from Medicare and Medicaid for substandard care in twelve of its homes.

The company that owns the nursing home is claiming no wrong doing despite the fact that they have settled for such a large amount. In addition to the settlement, the Department of Health will hold the nursing home owners to a chain-wide compliance agreement for a five-year period. For more, read the story.
