Hospitals in New York, Minnesota, Alabama, Indiana, Florida, Michigan and South Carolina are accused of falsely placing patients under inpatient care when their procedures are minimally invasive outpatient operations.
The allegations arose because hospitals were caught performing kyphoplasty operations under in-patient care. Kyphoplasty is a minimally invasive procedure, used to treat osteoporosis-caused spinal fractures that can be performed as outpatient operations.
