Hello Friends,

The 1997 federal grand jury indictment of hospice operator Joseph A. Kirschenbaum shows that drug trials are not the only type of patient recruitment subject to ethics violations. The indictment alleged that Kirschenbaum paid nursing homes a capitation fee to enroll patients in his hospice care and paid doctors to diagnose patients they had not examined with terminal illnesses the precondition for hospice care eligibility. According to a 1998 story in the "New York Times," schemes that enrolled non-terminally ill patients in federally funded hospice care bilked Medicare and other programs out of $28.5 billion in 1997.

Thanks and Regards,
Lucy james
