Please help. I obtained a job doing post hospitalization visits to elderly people who have a certain type of Medicare . It was through an agency. Well it was a nightmare. I was only paid if I actually did the visit. Well they gave a list of a little under 20 patients. When I tried to schedule visits two had died, phone were disconnected, and messages never returned. I have spent hours for no compensation. I told the agency I was done. The director threatened me she said that she would report med to Medicare/ Medicaid and my board of nursing if I didn't complete a long form in each patient that I could not see. Mind you I will not be compensated for any of this.
she said that I accepted a responsibility when I was emailed the list of patients. I am scared. I don't know what to do. Can I be reported when I have never even seen a patient. Has anyone ever been threatened in this manner?
Thanks for any advice.
