Man admits using false credentials to get health care jobs

Used the name of a Texas nurse

ST. LOUIS - A 37-year-old Illinois prison inmate has pleaded guilty to using fraudulent work and educational history to obtain jobs at three St. Louis-area health care facilities.
  
Benjamin Danneman pleaded guilty Wednesday in federal court in St. Louis to health care fraud, aggravated identity theft and Social Security fraud.
  
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports court documents say Danneman used the name of a Texas nurse and made other false claims to obtain jobs at Sherbrooke Village in south St. Louis County and the Rehabilitation Institute of St. Louis. He also was assistant director of nursing at the Quarters of Des Peres, a 122-bed nursing home.
  
Court records say Danneman never had any license allowing him to provide medical services.
  
Danneman is serving a prison sentence in Illinois on several charges, including attempted burglary and theft.
