Not long ago the Department of Justice announced a $1,250,000 settlement from the operator of a nursing home that involved providing effectively worthless services to residents. The allegations included the nursing home managers failed to meet the nutritional needs of residents, failed to administer medications to residents as prescribed by their physicians, over-medicated residents, hired insufficient staff to care for them, and diverted Medicare and Medicaid funds to other entities affiliated with the operators and in doing so left the facility unable to pay for its basic operations, including food, heat, air conditioning, pest control, and cleaning. The whistleblower reward was substantial in this instance.
