Nursing Home Identity Fraud Leads To Sentencing Of Two Employees

A nursing home worker has received a sentence for identity theft after using names and identities of patients along with a co-worker to falsify tax returns. The tax returns brought $6,500 in refunds, for which the court is requiring the guilty party to pay restitution. In addition to the payment and a permanent removal from the medical field, a jail sentence may be on the horizon.

The former nursing home worker’s attorney is arguing that the worker has three children that would go into foster care if she is sentenced to jail. However, the counter part in the fraudulent scheme already received 27 years in prison last year for her misconduct, due to a greater involvement and leadership in the identity theft.
