Nursing Home Operators Charged With Medicare Fraud; Services Called "Worthless" by Judge

A 63-year-old man and his wife have been convicted on charges of conspiring to defraud the Medicare and Medicaid programs by billing them for “worthless services” in the operation of three different nursing homes. The nursing home residents went without food and lived in horrible conditions, meanwhile the couple had purchased real estate and had plans on building a hotel using the money.

The couple was convicted in United States District Court. The court stated that the care at the facility was so poor, due to services not actually being provided, that any services truly provided to the patients were worthless. For more, read the story.

Robert W. Carter, Jr. is a Virginia attorney whose law practice is dedicated to protecting the rights of the victims of nursing home and assisted living neglect and abuse in Richmond, Roanoke, Norfolk, Lynchburg, Danville, Charlottesville, and across Virginia.
