Delaware Healthcare Firm agrees to settle Lawsuit with $150K Payment
Harbor Healthcare of Lewes, DE, has agreed to pay $150,000 to settle a lawsuit alleging that it provided poor-quality treatment to children in its care in 1998 and 1999, according to delmarvanow.com.
The affected children were severely disabled, in some cases in a persistent vegetative state, according to a statement from the Delaware and U.S. justice departments.
Harbor Healthcare was accused of violating the federal False Claims Act by billing Delaware’s Medicaid program for work that was inadequate, officials said. The facility allegedly had too few employees and those workers allegedly weren’t properly trained to operate feeding tubes and perform other duties.
