Federal Officials File Suit Against Nursing Home Accused of Medicare Fraud

Federal officials from the Department of Justice are joining a whistleblower lawsuit claiming a nursing home operator was billing Medicare for services never provided to residents. According to the complaint, the facility operator provided only the most basic care services to residents.

The failure to provide adequate care resulted in pressure ulcers (also known as bed sores, decubitus sores, decubitus ulcers, and pressure sores), falls, dehydration and malnutrition. Employee paychecks were also delayed and employees bought food for the residents from their own paychecks. The care issues persisted for six years. The facility is now under new management.
