Assisted Living Facility Administrator Charged with Fraud Continues to Operate Facility

Officials have discovered that a Florida woman currently on house arrest for allegations of fraud is still running an assisted-living facility. The woman was charged with fraud after allegedly billing a hospital for $83,000 for temporary employees that her company did not actually supply. According to detectives, the "employees" who were paid the money were actually friends of the woman who returned much of the money to her.

Despite the pending fraud investigation and current house arrest, the woman is still the chief executive officer, administrator, and chief financial officer of an assisted living facility.  State health officials say that the facility is also under investigation and the woman's license could be suspended. The woman is charged in a state where a fraud conviction would preclude her from being able to operate an assisted-living facility. For more, read the story.
