Saint Joseph’s Hospital settles case regarding patient status

Saint Joseph’s Hospital of Atlanta settled allegations brought by a Wilbanks & Bridges client for $26 million. Tami Ramsey, a registered nurse and former hospital employee, filed this whistleblower lawsuit based upon her allegations that Saint Joseph’s had not followed Medicare regulations determining whether a patient should be placed into inpatient in St. Josephs hospital or outpatient status. This monetary settlement involved Saint Joseph’s being required to enter into a Corporate Integrity Agreement with the Government.
