    UW doctors face penalties for writing sick notes for protesters

    UW Health doctors who wrote sick notes for protesters at the Capitol in February face penalties up to a loss of pay and leadership positions, the UW School of Medicine and Public Health said Tuesday.

    The medical school reviewed 22 UW Health doctors said to have been involved in writing medical excuses for protesters attending rallies over Gov. Scott Walker’s budget proposals, according to a medical school statement.

    “Several” of the doctors were found not to have participated, and among those who were involved “the nature and extent of involvement varied widely,” the statement said.

    “Personnel action will be based on the specific nature of the offense and the level of the physician’s involvement,” the statement said. “The consequences range from written reprimand to loss of pay and leadership position.”

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    This is appropriate. Doctors should not be allowed to abuse their authority and lie about the health of their patients for political purposes.

    A suspended right to practice Medicine for about 5 years sounds about right for fraud to me.

    This does show you that Doctors tend to be way too freaking Liberal for their own good.

    I don't hate Doctors or I should say I don't hate the ones who have kept me alive for the last 10 years. Just the ones who file false papers supporting Unions that cost tax payers billions in over costs.

    You have to assume that if the doctors think this fraud is OK, what other type of fraud are they involved with.

    Each one should be investigated to the fullest.

    Interesting enough, insurance fraud typically starts off with bogus medical notes.
