They confirmed they do not accept checks from nurses by prescription, citing not sufficient funds and having issues with the company.Tom Boyd, the companyâ??s attorney released this statement: "Nurses by Prescription is â?|very concerned about employees or former employees who claim that they have not been paid or that their paychecks have not been honored. The records of Nurses by Prescription indicate that all employees and former employees have been paid the wages owed to them to date. Nurses by Prescription will certainly investigate."
