Geneva Social Worker Charged with Falsifying Patient Visits

GENEVA, IA – The Iowa Board of Social Work is accusing a Geneva social worker of falsifying patient visits.

According to a Notice of Hearing and Statement of Charges, Stacey Moore is charged with five counts including falsification of client records and making misrepresentations and materially false statements in a report or other document.  The statement of charges alleges the incidents happened while Moore worked as a social worker providing services to hospice patients from August 2007 to June 2011.  In June 2011, she was counseled by her employer for incomplete and missing documentation including assessments, telephone notes, and documentation on a plan of care in several patient charts.  The statement alleges Moore admitted on more than one occasion that she documented patient visits that did not happen.

Records show Moore has a license to practice social work at the bachelor level that is valid through December 31, 2014.

A hearing in the case will be held before the Board of Social Work on August 12 in Des Moines.
