Being asked to send documentation 6 months after leaving

Looking for advice. I was a home health nurse with a company and I left in October 2019 so I could focus on going back to school for my BSN. Before I left I had my supervisor send me a list of any documentation that needed to be completed before I turned in my work laptop. I completed everything on the list. About a month after I left he contacted me with questions regarding a discharge which I was able to answer because I could remember. I just got an email today, 6 months since I left, asking me to fill out more discharge documentation on 3 patients. I can hardly remember these patients, let alone discharge information. This is a standard document that is in all OASIS discharge and would have been completed anyway at time of discharge.

Has this happened to anyone else? Is there any laws/legislation about this? I would appreciate any advice. Thank you.

Not that, but the documentation regarding several hundred dollars worth of visit work that I did for an agency "disappeared" when I last worked. When I called to ask to get my pay, they said I never did the visits. When I gave identifying info of the clients, they insisted I never did the visits and would not acknowledge anything. The agency "lost" the documentation or whatever an agency does when they don't want to pay someone. I never took the matter up with the Labor Board. There are employers out there that are unscrupulous in more ways than one. You owe these people nothing. They want you to perform the role of the scapegoat for something. Ignore them.

I agree. Something else might be going on. To me, homecare always seemed to be extremely nebulous, ambiguous and unprotected when it came down to 'he said, she said' employee issues.

If you feel comfortable with your old employer, that's one thing. But if you feel uncomfortable, you could run the issue past your malpractice insurance for any suggestions.
