dc.description Report en_US
dc.description.abstract We identified 34,664 Medicare claims for our audit period that contained diagnosis codes indicating the treatment of injuries potentially caused by abuse or neglect of Medicare beneficiaries. We estimated 30,754 of these Medicare claims were supported by medical records that contained evidence of potential abuse or neglect. We further estimated that,of the claims in our population associated with incidents of potential abuse or neglect, 2,574 were allegedly perpetrated by a healthcare worker, 3,330 were related to incidents that occurred in a medical facility, and 9,294 were related to incidents that were not reported to law enforcement.
