Brian, Your Medical Device Headhunter discusses a recent article….
http://bit.ly/a1aVzL regarding a complaint/lawsuit against St Jude Medical for Medical malpractice…
The lawsuit filed by a patient, “alleges” The Doctor implanted the device that was not necessary.
What is most disturbing is it is “alleged” the Doctor (in a backdoor deal) convinced SJM to hire his son, which contributed to a 40% increase in sales in that territory, and was “allegedly” in the operating room when the plaintiff was in surgery for the device…
I not saying this is an entirely true story, but what I am saying is these types of “shenanigans” are happening in Medical/Health Industry…
Have we not learned from the OIL spill in the gulf?
Relationship and profits are NEVER a reason to risk a human life… NEVER!
Until we connect again soon, enJOY your day…
