Customer Question
I understand that there...
I understand that there is a law that holds a nurse to completing documetation. I work in Homehealth and clinicians will often send in part of the work , or not all the content needed. We pay them on the time sheets , then in audits find tha they have not completed their work. The federal government is now doing audits and we all stand to loose a great deal of money, and some agncies will close their doors. We must hold clinicians, Nurses Therapist and all to be responsible for their content and completness. I know that there is a law or statute in Arizona that states something about this subject. It may be federal as well.

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

TonyApopka, FL

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
