American senion communities

According to various news reports, the FBI has begun conducting a raid at the Carmel home of the CEO of an Indiana nursing home corporation, American Senior Communities.

According to news reports, the raid and investigation by the FBI stems from possible criminal activity related to Medicare and Medicaid reimbursements and kickbacks.  

According to its website, American Senior Communities is affiliated with more than 90 nursing homes located across Indiana.  According to the reports, at least some of those nursing homes are owned by The Health and Hospital Corporation of Marion County.  A list of the nursing homes are provided below.  

Nursing home neglect and Medicare fraud are often associated with for for-profit nursing home corporations.  We previously reported on the Office of the Inspector General’s 2012 study into inappropriate, inaccurate, and fraudulent medical claims for  payment from Medicare. These fraudulent claims by nursing homes cost taxpayers $1.5 billion in 2009 alone.  Nursing home corporations not only boost their bottom line by padding their Medicare reimbursements, but also through short staffing their facilities leading to poor quality of care for patients.

Indiana’s nursing home industry has long held the dubious distinction of providing some of the worst nursing home care in the U.S. For example, in 2009, Indiana was found to have more poorly performing nursing homes than any other state, according to a U.S. Government Accountability Office report.

Today’s troubling reports come after a string of recent media accounts that reflect poorly upon the state of nursing home care in Indiana.  Recently, a former employee of the Waters of Scottsburg nursing home was charged with the felony of voyeurism involving a nursing home patient, for allegedly taking a naked photograph of a nursing home patient’s back, buttocks and legs and sharing the photograph with others on social media.

Earlier this year, indictments were filed by a grand jury filed against a former employee of a Lawrenceburg, Indiana nursing home in connection to the death of a patient of the nursing home. According to news reports, a witness in that case told detectives that the employee violently pulled the patient from a walker, breaking the patient’s vertebra and causing death.

In yet another case, a former employee of a Jasper, Indiana nursing home was charged with sexual battery, battery with injury, and intimidation based upon allegations that the nursing home employee performed sexual acts with a patient, and then threatened the patient if he told anyone about it.
