Hi Nurses,<br><br>I work in a residential facility and we have mostly Medicaid adolescents. We have been under a budgeting issue and we are lacking in basic supplies such as insulin syringes, pill cups, thermometer probe covers, and even the AED battery (there is another AED on campus but it is not within the recommended 3-minute vicinity recommended by AHA). While this is inconvenient for the nurses, is there any kind of Medicaid fraud or JCAHO requirements that are being violated? It seems to me that these kids are paying $100-200+ per day and there should be reasonable expectations of certain resources. Does anyone know anything about this. I'm afraid to discuss this with administration for fear of retribution. <br><br>Thanks.
