“Three people have been charged in a $1-billion health care scam that used Miami nursing homes to cheat thousands of patients and prescribe unnecessary treatments for some of them, authorities said.”
Sounds quite similar to the crimes my former doctor was convicted of earlier this year.
Perhaps the government and medical community need to wake up, realize the HIPPA laws aren’t working, the mafia has moved into the medical field, and understand they must change the system? It’s the system that is the problem, not the innocent patients.
Some of the treatments patients received were allegedly harmful, such opioids prescribed to drug addicts.
If someone is in a nursing home why the hell shouldn’t they be allowed to take opiates if they want to ?
Sorry sir, you have to live out your final days in pain cause someone in the past gave you the addict label so we can’t give you any medicine that actually works…
