Memphis rehabilitation center to pay $500K for providing 'worthless' services

On February 5, 2018, McKnight’s Long-Term Care News reported, “Spring Gate Rehabilitation and Healthcare Center in Memphis will pay $500,000 to federal authorities and Tennessee to resolve false claims allegations.

“The Department of Health and Human Services' Office of Inspector General alleged that from 2012 to 2015, Memphis Operator LLC, doing business as Spring Gate, provided substandard and ‘worthless’ nursing home services to residents, care deemed so deficient it can't be claimed through Medicare or the state's Tenncare program.

“The allegations were first raised in a False Claims Act lawsuit brought by a whistleblower, according to a news release. The OIG intervened in the case and Spring Gate cooperated to reach a resolution.”
