Warning: Stay away from... - page 3

I just recently got hired on with a company and couldn't run away fast enough. I won't name the company. But they are hiring nurses or anyone with a 4 year science degree of any kind. No patient or... Read More

    Thank you for the warning.

    With the info you gave I think people could identify the company if they were exposed to it. I agree you are right not to name hte company here. Whatever anyone else says you need to protect yourself.

    The re-use of needles and other issues do need reporting. I would start with the insurance commissioner for watever state this was in.

    Thank you very much for alerting us to this.

    They are nationwide. So there is no specific location. They do training in one state. But they fly you there and back for that training. They are trying to set up clinics in Dr offices around the US. They are not in all states, but in most.

    Its a strange set up to me...but maybe this happens more often than I know of. The company says you work for them. But they have an agency that hires, gives benefits, and pays the employees. I remember something being said about them changing it up slightly because of laws. I don't remember the reason for that. But it was before I was there. The company has only been running for a year. Did I mention that the founder drives a Maserati? It seems that most companies are just starting to make a profit after a year. Anyway, the way its set up means working for the company (including interview by company, not the agency that pays and gives benefits) and being paid by this agency. Meanwhile, working in a Dr office and not working for the Dr. but still under the Dr's license. It just seemed really odd.

    This is also insurance fraud and could be reported under a whistle blower action. If you don't know where to start, try calling your state medical board or local state represenetative or senator .... DEFINATELY report them! Re-using needles? Procedures that are not needed? If they have committed insurance fraud you may also receive a percentage of the money they have swindled from the insurance companies (it's why our rates are so high, people aren't honest....).

    I would think if you DO hold a nursing license and have knowledge of these unsafe and unethical practices you are required to report this to your state department of health. This number should be easy to find.I don't know how you could sleep at night without doing this the day you found out about it. The public they are serving is at huge risk and if something serious happens --like they cause a patient to get HIV or HEP B there is a huge lawsuit and if you are a part of the practices and didn't do anything about it you may be legally liable. I would call the DOH STAT........if not you are just as guilty as they are.

    Like I said previously. I wasn't sure where to start reporting them. But from the replies I now have a start. They WILL be reported. Thats why I got out as soon as I realized what they were doing. I was in for 1 week of training out of town. Came back and was in the clinic for a week and left. That week in the clinic was when I found out about everything.

    I practice nursing as if the patients were my friends or family. If I wouldn't want my friends or family to be treated in that way, my patients won't be treated that way either.

    Have you reported them yet? If not you are just as guilty as they are. You know what they are doing. You need to protect the public.

    I really wish you would name names. I am not looking for a job now but I do have allergies. I would like to avoid this company.

    That is totally unfair. She is going to report it. It is not right to demand they she risk retaliation from this company by naming them here.

    She is doing this the right way and she is reporting it. I found your comment to be SUPER unreasonable.

    This may be a little harsh - but any nurse that would not walk out the first time he/she was told to reuse a needle does raise suspicions. Seems like most of the responders would have been gone long before orientation was complete. Why come here, post essentially annonymously about an unnamed company. Also no one else seems to be adding their experience - if this is a nationwide company hiring everywhere. Has no one else encountered anything suspicious? If they are setting up in existing medical practices, wouldn't those physicians want to know what was going on?

    So the more I think of it, the less credible the whole story seems.

    I think y'all should not jump to conclusions like a pack of hyenas. How about politely asking for clarification and then if the answer is not adequate you can go ahead and rip her head off?
