Settlement in case of
former Delaware
pediatrician Earl
Bradley, guilty of
raping or abusing
patients
The lawsuits
contended Beebe
could have prevented
future attacks by
Bradley if the staff
had reported him to
Delaware's medical
disciplinary board,
which licenses and
disciplines physicians.

WILMINGTON, Del. -- More
than 1,400 victims of former
Delaware pediatrician Earl B.
Bradley have been sent letters
detailing the amount of money
they will receive from a $122
million settlement from a
class-action lawsuit against
Beebe Medical Center, the
Medical Society of Delaware
and a handful of doctors.

Bruce L. Hudson, a
Wilmington, Del., attorney who
represented about 150 former
patients of the Lewes, Del.,
doctor who filmed himself
raping about 100 children,
including babies, and abused
hundreds of others, said
victims and their families will
finally learn how much they will
be compensated...

Shocking Provisions in Medical Staff Bylaws
AAPS
Association of American Physicians and Surgeons
Jan 7, 2012

Submitted by a physician:

Here is one of the most shocking provisions concerning criteria for initiation of
corrective action in medical staff bylaws I have seen to date.



















Comments from physician on above criteria:

1. "fails to provide quality care in an efficient or resource-effective manner

Physicians who prefer to use certain name-brand medications (or expensive IV
antibiotics)
over generics, or who believe that certain surgical implants
are superior to cheaper alternatives could be prime candidates
for attack under this provision. I am aware of one case where the
spine surgeon refused to use very cheap, inferior implants because
he believed they were unsafe for patients, and the hospital attacked him
on that issue.

2. "significantly affects reimbursement to the Hospital in an adverse manner"

Those physicians who refuse to go along with the "creative" coding
of the professional coders employed by the hospital (perhaps because
they believe it is fraud) so as to maximize revenue from the third party
payor could find themselves on the hospital's "hit list." Also, what happens
if a managed care company insists that 100% of physicians on medical staff
participate with their plan or they will provide a much lower level of
reimbursement
to the hospital?

3. "causes an intensified review of the Hospital by any government or private
reviewing agency"

A physician who is not successful in correcting a hospital-created
deficiency or substandard or unsafe care situation by going through
the hospital system, may ethically decide to report substandard or
unsafe care to an outside agency - HHS, Dept of Health, JCAHO etc.
However, if the physician did that, it could lead to an investigation,
which would then meet criteria to initiate corrective action against the physician.
We have seen this type of policy promulgated in the "code of conduct" in
hospitals,
where they essentially specifiy "thou shalt not be a physician whistleblower."
This, however, is the first time I have seen it specifically listed in medical staff
bylaws as a criteria to initiate corrective action. Remember the Clark v. Columbia
HCA case from 2001. This is precisely what happened to Dr. Clark. Because he
reported substandard care to outside agencies (after calling it to the hospital
administration's attention and the hospital refused to correct the situation),
the hospital terminated Dr. Clark's privileges. Dr. Clark eventually prevailed in
court.
Medical Boards condoning falsifying medical records to cover up errors is barbaric!

Expanding effort for accountability of medical records.
Cameras in operating rooms NOW!

We are now reaching out to the Duke University Hospital's Chief of Criminal investigations Greg
Stotsenberg to broker a deal to meet with three of the professors involved.  Will update everyone with
results. Thank you all for your support

Petition to
North Carolina Medical Board, Duke University Hospital & North Carolina Hospital Association
Shelly Skalicky is determined to survive, and stand up for everyone's rights to accurate medical records
"DEVOID OF INTENTIONAL FALSIFYING" WONT YOU HELP END THIS PRACTICE? FOR THE THIRD
TIME IN THREE YEARS! CASE# 2010 / 0282
is currently before the Medical Board involves blatant conspiracy in falsifying of patient medical records
to cover-up WRONG SURGERY WAS DONE, causing catastrophic injury.

Shelly Skalicky has a three inch implant in her neck running from her brain stem down her spinal cord
canal that has been there for twenty three years. Because Shelly suffered the WRONG SURGERY in
2008, no one dare admit it there, it will prove her 2008 medical records are falsified. This case was
reviewed back in 2010 and the NCMB let all four doctors off without so much as a slap on the wrist. We
re-submitted it for re-review Nov 2012. We have no reason to think they will overturn their 2010 findings
leaving Shelly with an implant touching her brain that no one can admit is there. Please have everyone
you can sigh this petition before Jan 30 2013 when they are expected to close Shelly's case. Never has
a friend or a stranger's signature been so important to a single person's future health care and life.
NORTH CAROLINA MEDICAL BOARD MUST NOT PERMIT DOCTORS AND/OR HOSPITALS TO
FALSIFY MEDICAL RECORDS TO COVER UP ERRORS JUST TO INCREASE HOSPITAL PROFITS.
Teaching falsifying medical records in Medical Universities as part of "standard of care" can not be
permitted by simply doing nothing. Anyone with knowledge of falsifying a patient's medical records to
conceal error and stays silent is culpable by very silence. This includes other practitioners, the NCMB
and Duke University Hospital authorities.

Shelly Skalicky MRI

...Click STAT MRI play button and leave your curser rest over the play button. Watch two things, the timer as it
gets to the 22 second mark and the number at top left 5246909 change to 7082150 STOP VIDEO, back video
up, start over watch it again. When number changes again STOP VIDEO.  That number change is the
"subliminal marker" telling the Radiologist not to document anything after that point.

Of the over 400 images taken during this MRI, less than 90 of the images were used in the findings, the rest with
the name changed were not documented because they were just too damning. (take special not at top of shunt
in MRI)

3:53 PM Prior to the radiology technologist jbw "saving" the MRI images to file, at that 22 second mark, jbw
simply switched the study name from "MRI CBRVICAL SPINE W/O ENHAN" TO "C-SPINE NEURO"  so the images
with the new name "MRI C- SPINE NEURO"  (over 300 images) are not going to be included in the STAT MRI
findings, thus covering up by avoiding documenting doing the wrong surgery.
