  • During the last decade the federal government has made investigation of healthcare fraud and abuse a priority. Increasingly, nurses and skilled nursing organizations have been at the center of fraud and abuse cases. The authors examine data of sanctioned nurses obtained from the Office of the Inspector General. Nurses are most frequently sanctioned for license violations, drug convictions, and patient neglect.
