    Thank you for your courage in reporting fraud. We should never be indifferent to fraud and keep quite. Guess what kids, this is your and my money and our future healthcare insurance when we are elderly.

Without knowing your exact circumstances I still think home health is an option for you. Any ethical comapny with an active compliance plan and compliance officer would be grateful to have an employee like you. At the next interview ask if the company has a compliance plan and officer and how frequently staff training occurs. Good luck to you. You appear to be the kind of nurse who needs to stay in home care, ethical, professional and beyond reproach and we need a lot more like you.

    My agency does not do any of that and neither do I. I am at my job the time I say I'm there. In fact, in my orientation, the case managers made a big deal about being at the job the entire time that I am supposed to be. Has anyone gone electronic yet in home care? Just curious.
