State Health Department Falsifies Nursing Home Complaint Records To Meet Deadlines

A state department of health has been exposed by a whistleblower employee for falsifying dates on records. The records involve complaints regarding nursing home cases dealing with neglect, abuse, falls, and pressure sores. The complaints were entered with a complaint date of up to 79 days past the actual date of incident.

The falsification is believed to be attributed to the department trying to appear to be meeting deadlines set for the by state contracts. The whistleblower had this to say, “In my belief, falsification is a serious matter and unlawful and our department should know better to not manipulate paperwork to mislead others and the public.” For more, read the story.
