The Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation has recently been disciplining Illinois Nurses for issues related to the practice of Home Health Care. Many Nursing Agencies, that place nurses, have been auditing nursing records to verify that nurses are staying for as long as they say there are. Some Home Health Patients are even being interviewed. The Department also disciplines nurses for exceeding the scope of their licenses. Some nurses will change doctor’s orders, or even give care without consulting a doctor. Even though nurses can be overworked, they must check in with the medical director in charge of the patient before altering medical care to a Home Health patient.
