Maryland Skilled Nursing Provider Sues State 

Maryland Skilled Nursing Provider Sues State 

Mar 30, 2017

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.

A Florida healthcare provider (Memorial Healthcare Systems) has paid the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services $5.5 million to settle potential HIPAA violations. The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA), was enacted to publicize standards for the electronic exchange, privacy and security of health information. The reasoning behind this settlement was a security breach that occurred within the last several years. 115,143 patients’ information was accessed using a former employees’ login credentials.
