Wrong prescription

MANAGERS of a home for the elderly kept charging authorities for medicine for 24 residents even after they had died.

Now the managing directors of the centre in Vicar have been charged with alleged fraud worth nearly €4,400.

According to Guardia Civil investigations, they kept prescribing medicine for the residents who had died between January 2010 and June 2012.

Inspectors of the Andalucian Health deputy office in Almeria discovered the alleged offences and reported them to the Guardia Civil.
