Maryland Skilled Nursing Provider Sues State 

In December 2016, Neiswanger Management Services (NMS), a Maryland nursing home operator, was sued by the Maryland Attorney General. Maryland Attorney General Brian E. Frosh stated that in the investigation, they discovered that NMS had removed residents from their facilities after their Medicare coverage expired and that they did not find suitable alternative care. NMS strongly disputed the allegations in Frosh’s suit.

On Friday March 17, 2017, NMS sued state health officials claiming that they “abused and misused the State survey process” to shut down their facilities. Throughout their legal filings, NMS claims that state health officials unnecessarily targeted their facility, imposed “unjustified” citations and engaged in “illegal actions.” NMS summed up these actions by calling them a “regulatory assault.”
