A podiatrist who comes to our Rural Health clinic monthly to see patients has recently been going over to our hospital while here and seeing patients from the Long Term Care wing. However, he is not seeing them in the LTC location; he is having them brought out to see them in a small room near the nurses station near acute as outpatient. He then is doing his documentation and charges as if it's at our clinic that he sees the patients. This really has me concerned and I am holding the charges as it all seems fraudulent. Can anyone tell me if what he is doing is legal and okay?
