NASHVILLE – Special Agents in the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation’s Medicaid Fraud Control Unit have obtained an indictment for a Dickson woman accused of misusing the finances of a woman in her care.
After receiving information from the Department of Human Services Adult Protective Services, TBI Agents began an investigation into Kimberly Niemisto on December 21, 2015. During the course of the investigation, Agents developed information that Niemisto, an employee of Right at Home In Home Care & Assistance, fraudulently used a patient’s debit/credit card to make purchases without the patient’s consent.
