A woman has filed a lawsuit alleging her co-workers falsified nursing home inspection records because she had blown the whistle on an affair in the State Fire Marshall’s office. Senator Charles Grassley has been monitoring the case, as millions of dollars in federal Medicaid money’s at risk. Grassley says it’s really a shame when dependent people in nursing homes are put at risk because of soured personal relationships. Grassley says he’s found personal relationships can affect the carrying out of good public policy or the enforcement of law. Two employees in the Fire Marshall’s office have been suspended as state investigators review nursing home inspection records. According to court papers, one of the women involved says her co-workers changed dates on inspection records because she went public with an affair involving the Fire Marshall and one of her co-workers.
