US Nursing Corp.

Trenton, NJ: (Mar-24-07) The New Jersey Division of Consumer Affairs filed charges against US Nursing Corp. of Greenwood Village, CO alleging that the temporary nursing firm skipped required background checks on many nurses, among other violations. The company supplied nurses to replace union nurses on strike last year at Englewood Hospital and Medical Center and Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital in New Brunswick. The company also supplied nurses to at least 16 other hospitals in New Jersey from 2004 through 2006. The number of nurses that did not have the mandatory criminal background checks, professional license status, and malpractice insurance could not be provided. Though the company did not admit to wrongdoing, it resolved the allegations with a $235,000 fine agreeing to follow the state's personal services regulations. [PHILLY BURBS: TEMP NURSES]
