Doctor Chastised Over Nursing Home Negligence

A physician has been reprimanded by the state medical registration board for elderly negligence. The doctor mishandled the care of an 88-year-old man when he changed his medications. He also failed to inform the victim’s cardiologist and gave the patient “unrealistic instructions” for handling his own medicines. In 2008 the doctor agreed to pay $150,000 to settle allegations that he submitted fraudulent claims to the Medicare and Medicaid programs for office and nursing home errors. He has become entangled in the federal probe because of the nursing home errors by the billing service. To read more about the doctor’s fraudulent claims, please click the link.
