A big nursing home company and its former CEO admit they conspired to defraud Medicare and Medicaid to the tune of at least four-million dollars. The federal prosecutor for eastern Missouri, Catherine Hanaway, says the care provided by American Healthcare and its CEO Robert Wachter was almost non-existent. She says one patient was beaten to death by an employee. Other patients were mistreated and ignored. Some were left to lie in their own soiled beds. The prosecutor recommends Wachter go to prison for 18 months.
