SCAM Alert: Fake Calls


Dear Medical Professionals:

Fake (SPOOF) Calls 

The Oklahoma Board of Medical Licensure has received multiple reports from our licensees about a potential scam.  The caller states they are with the Oklahoma Medical Board and the caller ID even shows the call originating from the Oklahoma Board of Medical Licensure & Supervision.  The caller tells the licensee there is a problem with their license and it may be suspended.*

If in doubt, please hang up and call the Board directly. Board staff is aware of these types of calls and will understand your need to verify their identity. Similar calls have also occurred where the caller says they are with the Drug Enforcement Administration, with caller ID showing the call originating from the DEA.

IN ANY CASE, Please do not give out any personal information (SSN, cell number, personal address, etc.) to ANY individuals.

*It is possible that a staff member from the Medical Board would call and inquire about something, but never to give notice of the suspension of a license

CMS Nursing Home Audits


     Inappropriate Use of Antipsychotic Medications

     And

     Erroneous Diagnosis of Schizophrenia in Nursing Homes

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) are responsible for the oversight and health and safety of nursing home residents. Over the past decade, through the work of the National Partnership to Improve Dementia Care, CMS has been monitoring antipsychotic medication use in nursing homes. Though steps have been taken to reduce the use of these drugs, there continue to be concerns that nursing home residents may be inappropriately prescribed antipsychotic medications due to being erroneously diagnosed and coded as having schizophrenia;

To increase our focus on this issue, CMS recently announced they will be conducting off-site nursing home audits. If the audit reveals a pattern of inaccurate coding and if there are instances where a practitioner has not followed professionals’ standards of practice for diagnosing individuals and prescribing medications, we believe these practitioners should be referred to their respective state medical boards for investigation.
