Default Solstas Phlebotomy Illegal Activity

I did a lunch in a Solstas account this week. As I waited to get started, I watched the Solstas phlebotomist bring back a patient, take their vitals and put them in a room for their office visit. She had her name tag turned backward. It appeared to be part of thier routine. No phlebotomy was performed at this time.

Here's my delimma: this is clearly illegal. I don't know how to report it without raising a red flag to who turned it in. At the same time - my lab wouldn't allow this which means the office would see us as performing less of service if they change to us.

Ive considered reporting it to my companys compliance, solstas compliance or to the state. What should I do?

Either tell your compliance department or call theirs. There's no way your gonna get their business as long as they have that "service".

As with any lab, this practice is neither encouraged nor condoned. Despite signing agreements to the contrary, clients put pressure on the Phleb to do "extra" things. Good advice to call your legal or compliance group. They will call Solstas.

Dear God, please don't let this be happening in one of the accounts I take care of! Would someone please tell me what area this account is in?

Happens all the time in Northern Va as well. They will either be Labcorp or Quest soon anyways and they will not put up with that.

Call the state. Solstas doesn't even HAVE a compliance officer because BS quit and they didn't replace her.

They do have a compliance officer. Actually 3. They didn't replace BS because she never did a thing. Never there. Never returns calls....

I have seen IOP's from every lab doing things they should not be doing. It is very hard to police. IOP's should be banned from being placed in offices anyway.

Same thing happened to me. Took an office from Solstas and the Phlebotomist was part of the deal. Turns out Solstas was allowing her to do whatever. They were turning a blind eye to it. She made up her own orders and got her wn coding out of the chart, took pt. weight and BP and entered into the EMR, helped with billing, and more.

Now doc thinks we're offering less service. Frustrating!

Arms Re: Solstas Phlebotomy Illegal Activity

There is a lot of illegal stuff going on in Northern Virginia because of supervisors that sit on their ass and don't even go to their accounts they sit at home and collect their check every week.. I hear Solstas is being sold and it's almost bankrupt. I've heard this twice in last two days from different clients and their employees.

Lol Re: Solstas Phlebotomy Illegal Activity

I also know in northern va they several employees getting ready to sue them because they are not paying travel time to employees. Phlebs are traveling past their main locations and not being paid which is against federal law..

Really??? Solstas employees do not know this yet clients and their employees do? I'm calling BS on this. At best a competitor's rep is in there spreading lies.

Client said that Solstas supervisor told her that if Solstas wasn't sold within 90 days then they were going to be bankrupt. This just happened today.

I get a kick out of people who cannot compete and win. It is amazing how good they are at spreading lies, but can't sell. Could be a reason why they do not have a job.

Paranoid Re: Solstas Phlebotomy Illegal Activity

Really?? Umm I am an employee of Solstas and the client told me this today.. So not sure who your talking about in sales or not having a job. I'm a phlebotomist for Solstas and if you read any of the other threads on here you will learn that yesterday or the day before Solstas did indeed layoff almost 200 employees..

I would get the facts straight if I were you. The facts are that Solstas has taken significant amounts of business from Labcorp and Quest recently and they are doing very well. Both Quest and LabCorp are laying off people in response to market changes. Why is Solstas any different?

The FACT is that Solstas continuously allows their phlebs to do things that are way over the line. Vital signs, check in, taking messages, not getting written orders or dx codes from phyicians. LabCorp nor Quest wil not do these things, therefore work with a handicap. FACT

They didn't really replace BS. Come on...now that's real BS. She saw too much. She was smart and jumped ship or I should say train before the train wreck . I worked with her in the past. She was feared...which made her hotter.

It's not happening in my area or else I would stop it. End of story. I don't think BS was "feared" but was respected. She's gone but the rules didnt go with her. We all know them. Quit passing the buck to a Supervisor or anyone else.

All of this whinning from LabCorp or Quest. How do you think LC and Quest became the biggest companies? By hard grassroots work satisfying customers? Hogwash. Mostly because they could attract investors. They both did incredibly unscrupulous activities in the early days far worse than things Solstas likely even dreams about.

LC and Quest, dont point fingers just keep your head down.

Your own family doesn't respect you or take you seriously. What makes you think that major lab companies care about your silly, baseless accusations?

Pathetic tool.

Keep your head down and let Solstas keep screwing people.

You are correct, my family doesn't respect me but your wife sure does and she thinks my tool is anything but pathetic. She mainly reserves that term when discussing your brain, personality, and unit.

Not a bad try, but you are far too busy felching bbc creampies out of your wife and daughter to have time to visit my wife.

I know your parents are extremely proud of your behavior and language. This from a couple of folks who want to be thought of as "professionals". Pretty sad.

You talk a lot of junk for a gal who doesn't even know for sure who her daddy is...or exactly who the daddies of your children are.

Take it somewhere else, TT.
