Landmark failure of care case against Pennsylvania hospital settles

The United States Attorney in Philadelphia announced a settlement with Central Montgomery Medical Center in a suit which alleged failure of care violations under the False Claims Act. The government alleged that the hospital violated Medicare conditions of participation by illegally restraining patients and that bills for services rendered to those patients should therefore be considered false claims.

The hospital has agreed to pay $200,000 and to hire a consultant to review the use of restraints at the hospital.

The U.S. Attorney’s press release was issued on July 25, 2005.
