Chimicles & Tikellis is investigating a potential class action lawsuit on behalf of hospital patients who have also fallen victim to unfair debt collection practices during their hospital visit. It has been reported that some companies, such as Accretive Health, have placed its employees in emergency rooms and other departments in hospitals demanding that patients pay overdue bills before receiving treatment. Hospital patients waiting in the emergency room or recovering from surgery could find themselves confronted by a debt collector at bedside. This practice is in violation of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act.
