They pretty much told us that with all the new reulations, we should all plan on being audited and fined for every little thing. In fact I talked to accountant who had been approached by a reglator person to become an auditor. The accountant stated that he had no medical knowledge; he was told that he din't need any, that strict evaluation books would be furnished. He only needed to look for specific "key" words in the charting. If certain words did not appear, it would mean an immediate fine. Does that make anyone else feel uncomfortable?
