Ex-Nursing Home Head Indicted On Theft, Fraud

BERLIN -- A former Berlin Nursing and Rehabilitation Center administrator has been indicted by a Charles County grand jury on multiple counts of theft and fraud, including allegedly bilking the local nursing home out of thousands of dollars nearly a decade ago.

Maryland Attorney General Doug Gansler on Wednesday announced Scott Colver, 48, of Hagerstown, has been indicted and charged with six counts of felony Medicaid fraud, five counts of felony theft and one count of felony theft scheme. The indictment alleges that over a period of time in 2004 and 2005, Colver made false representations and attempted to defraud the Maryland Medicaid program in connection with nursing home expenses.

Good! There is SO much medicare and insurance fraud in this area, it is disgusting. Even when fraud is reported to insurance companies, they don't seem to care. We, as a nation, MUST make these businesses and companies accountable for what we end up paying for in the long run.
As for nursing homes, someone should REALLY look into what goes on inside, the minimal care the patients receive, the disgraceful treatment of employees, the shady record keeping, terrible attrition rates of employees and WHY, and so much more. The care available for our elderly is disgraceful.
