Adventist Health System Sunbelt Healthcare Corporation agreed to pay $2.09 million to resolve allegations that patients were administered portions of single-dose vials of chemotherapy drugs that were left over from administrations to prior patients.  The settlement also resolves allegations that some platinum based drugs were administered inappropriately and that certain infusion services were upcoded.  The allegations originated in a whistleblower lawsuit filed by former Adventist employee Heather Huddleston under the qui tam provisions of the False Claims Act.  She will receive a whistleblower award of $376,452 from the proceeds of the government’s recovery.  DOJ (MDFL)
