California Nursing Homes Face FCA Allegations

September 5, 2014

Watsonville Nursing Center, formerly Country Villa Watsonville East Nursing Center, and Watsonville Post-Acute Care Center, formerly Country Villa Watsonville West Nursing and Rehabilitation Center, in California are facing allegations that they overmedicated patients with antipsychotics and other medication for the benefit and convenience of staff according to a article in McKnights.  The medications were not medically necessary for the patients; however, they billed Medicare for the medication, in violation of the False Claims Act.

The complaint also names The Arba Group, a management group, and other owners as defendants.  While, the defense denies liability, the United States is pursuing the action to recover civil penalties.
