Fraudulent Medical Records – Is This You?
You are a legal nurse consultant who is analyzing a chart. All of a sudden, you see a chart entry that does not make sense – or the absence of an entry that should have been there. You look away, bewildered. You begin to form a thought – “Someone tampered with these records.” Your medical knowledge may make you the only person on the legal team to recognize the tampering has occurred.
Today’s highly charged atmosphere with its focus on financial survival of healthcare organizations and medical malpractice increases the temptation to alter records when something goes wrong. There are many reasons why a person would tamper with records, including an intention to commit fraud, such as billing for services not performed, or fear or guilt when an untoward outcome occurs.
How often do you find yourself saying, “I wish I knew how to identify fraudulent records?” Tampering with medical records skyrockets the implications of a case. You’ll learn why this act so profoundly affects a medical malpractice case. This program contains what every legal nurse consultant should know about altered medical records. You will get the truth about how you can help an attorney with suspicions of altered medical records.
