An experienced nurse attorney has surely helped a lot of RNs and LVNs when it comes to cases that may lead to disciplinary action. Unfortunately, not all nurses were able to hire a nurse attorney as they underwent such cases. This incident that an RN committed on September 16, 2016, was one of those examples.

During the said date, the RN allegedly signed bogus documents in $13 million health care fraud.  She was charged with fraud for her role in a $13 million home health care scam made possible by what prosecutors called her rubber stamp signature on fraudulent documents.

According to accusations, the RN and several of her co-nurses wooed about 11,000 Medicare patients with promises of cash, food stamps, and groceries.

They stole a record $373 million from Medicare and Medicaid with their home health care scheme using fake patients — including some of Dallas’ homeless.

Because of this, a complaint was filed against the RN.  The RN arrested in early 2016. She was charged with conspiracy to commit health care fraud and health care fraud.

The Texas Board of Nursing has full jurisdiction over all cases regarding errors committed by an RN or LVN.

The following incident and defense against the case caused the Texas Board of Nursing to place the RN and her license into disciplinary proceedings. She would have sought assistance from a good nurse attorney to provide clarifications towards the case.
