Twenty UW MDs Sanctioned for Walker “Sick Notes”
April 5, 2012 - 5:24 pm
From the Wisconsin State Journal:
UW School of Medicine and Public Health disciplined 20 doctors for writing questionable sick notes for protesters last year, newly released records show, with three doctors getting the harshest penalty: fines of up to $4,000 and loss of leadership positions for four months.
“One of the problems is that virtually none of those involved acknowledge that they did anything wrong,” wrote Dr. Norm Fost, head of a medical school investigatory committee that found the doctors seemed to be acting dishonestly, didn’t provide competent care and failed to protect patient privacy.
These, of course, would be the doctors who stood at anti-Scott Walker protests giving “doctor’s notes” to protesting teachers who had cut school for the protest.
