If a nurse ever faces a criminal matter, they could wind up on the Medicare and Medicaid Exclusion list which prohibits a nurse from working in any facility where they take Medicare or Medicaid payments which is virtually every place.
The goal of many attorneys is to keep a nurse with a criminal matter out of prison which is proper and a worthy goal for their client. However, many an attorney may not understand the ramification if their nurse client is added to the exclusion list that makes it very difficult for the nurse to then find employment.
The attached video here discusses the various ways that a nurse might get added to this list and what being added to it can mean for a nurse’s ability to practice as well as other charges which can affect your ability to work.
