Here are some interesting takeaways to note: Nurses are still the most excluded among healthcare professionals — higher than any other group including personal care providers and home health aides. Nurse exclusions reached an average of 1,638 and represent an ongoing concern for employers. While the amount of excluded individuals dipped a bit in 2016 the penalties and settlements accrued have still been substantial with Civil Monetary Penalties currently total over $1,373,715.76 and Provider Self-Disclosure settlements total $6,767,509.47. Florida, California and Texas are the states with the most exclusions for the past 3 years. The last quarter of 2016 regulation was passed to adjust all exclusion fines in accordance with inflation rates. This may very well cause the total penalties and settlements to be much higher in 2017.
