Justice Department Sues American Health Foundation for Providing Grossly Substandard Services

The Justice Department announced last week that it has filed a False Claims Act complaint against American Health Foundation (AHF), its affiliate AHF Management Corporation, and three affiliate nursing homes located in Ohio and Pennsylvania. The complaint alleges that the three nursing homes provided skilled nursing services that were grossly substandard, including failure to follow infection control protocols and to maintain adequate staffing levels. For example, one nursing home allegedly “housed its residents in a dirty, pest-infested building; gave its residents unnecessary medications, including antibiotic, antipsychotic, anti-anxiety and hypnotic drugs; failed to safeguard residents’ personal possessions; subjected residents to verbal abuse; neglected to provide residents with activities or stimulation; and failed to provide needed psychiatric care.”
