Skip to comments.Video: Doctors handing out fake medical excuses at WI union protest
Posted on 02/19/2011 2:24:49 PM PST by Hojczyk
Via Drudge, one of the more hypocritical moments of the union protests in Madison gets committed to videotape by MacIver Institute. Why hypocritical? Well, imagine what these same teachers would say if their students got doctors to sign notes en masse at the mall to teenagers that play hooky from their classes. Great lesson these teachers are giving their students, especially the ones they brought in tow to Wisconsins capital:
I asked this doctor what he was doing and he told me they were handing out excuses to people who were feeling sick due to emotional, mental or financial distress, said Christian Hartsock. They never performed an examhe asked me how I was feeling today and I said Im from California and Im not used to the cold, so he handed me a note.
Another woman, who wished to remain anonymous, said they were handing out excuses like they were leaflets.
I asked if they were handing out doctors excuses and a guy said yes and asked me if I needed one, she said. When I told them I needed one for February 16 and 17th, he wondered if I wanted to come back here for the protests next week.
What happened next?
I said, sure, and I received a doctors note for the 16th through the 25th of February, without a medical exam.
Dont miss the doctor who scolded the cameraman because he doesnt hang out at the capital every day for a year before asking questions about aiding and abetting fraud. Perhaps the state might want to look into these cases of inadequate examination and potential misdiagnosis by the doctors who issued those notes, too.
On the Hot Air site now?
Viral is so very very schweeet!
Has it been sent to Drudge and Rush?? Anyone know?
Yeah man! The hell with democracy, we want anarchy! We never play by the rules we impose on other people! That’s for dummies.
Why wait til Monday? Email email@example.com
Someone posted this on another board.
This should teach America everything it needs to know about Obamacare.
Drudge has it up.
They don’t care about the Children!
>> Mal Practice???
No, it’s Obamacare.
Did anybody else notice in the article that the “Doctor” mentioned this riot going into next week until the 25th?
If so, this lawlessness must come to an end. And real soon.
Since when does the Left play by any rules?
Isn't Medicade administered by the states?
Ministry of Truth bookmark.
Well if her insurance gets billed for a dotors visit.
They should look into insurance fraud!!!
Medical malpractice and fraud should be sufficient for revocation of a license to practice.
Oh, I think the longer it goes on, the SOONER the American people wake up and vote for REAL change.
Would be ironic for a person named Dr. Len Forcement, to work in the field of medical malpractice.
* - It's a joke people.
I’m wondering how long it will take for one of the fake “patients” to see $$$ in the form of a malpractice suit against one of these doctors for a misdiagnosis.
Law suit..the only answer. Sue the livin shit out of them for medical fraud.
But I think the real value of this will be the blowback that happens when honest, fair-minded, yet sometimes left-leaning Independents (in other words, the kind of folks who voted for Obama and hopey-changey in 2008) see this and other examples of the depths of lying, fraud, deceipt, and hatefulness that the liberals happily descend to in order to “win”.
As Rush says: “Liberals lie”. Proof is all around us.
How the hell? Dang it! You beat me by just that much.
The whole damn thing is a fraud... get enough people to be fraudulent together and it magically becomes moral and ethical. This is how it is possible that a segment of society becomes debased enough to do their countrymen harm, real harm, and not bat an eye... evil pure and simple. This is how the Dr’s at Auschwitz were able to overcome their natural human aversion to the pain and suffering of their captors. It was OK to perpetrate evil, because it was sanctioned by so many.
Ask the doctor if a patient file exists, a billing statement, anything that supports this letter with no letterhead and a signature that claims to be a doctor.
Fire the employee for submitting a fraudulent document. Sick leave is paid leave and a fraud here is stealing from the employer.
Did you notice that her e-mail is for holly.keevil@...?
and taxpayers as these are public funded positions
It’s fakery and corruption - two things the Left excels at.
Check this out!
This will not go unnoticed in an Adult controlled House of Representatives.
Well, the bright side is that great minds think alike! :)
They should loss their licenses.
Actually, since the Governor runs the Board of Licensure, or whatever it is called up there, he can have their licenses yanked.
Not malpractice. But, falsification of medical records is a felony.
The form she signed authorizing the absence invites a call for further information. If the employer requests “further information”, Dr. Keevil has a choice:
1) Lie regarding the details; or,
2) Admit that there is no supportive data.
Either way, Dr. Keevil is in trouble.
The guy in red appears to be an academia type - one might wonder if he’s a Clinical Psychologist or something. They can issue prescriptions in most states. I wonder if they’re being paid by the union? I can’t see them do it for free.
Yup, she spent about 300 grand for her schooling and she is about to see it go out the window.
I hope she is good at the worlds oldest profession.
There is no Dr. Keevil...those people are not doctors.
I hope she is good at the worlds oldest profession.
Looking at her and her attitude, I suppose she could make a living at below union hooker piece work wages...make it up in volume. I guess Laz would hit it if the price was right.
A investigator could run a hell of a sting op here.
Just put it out that the people who received these can come in and present them at (a particular place) and get refunded (a certain amount of cash) to supplement their sick pay.
When these idiots show up, grab the notes and throw them in jail and you’d have the notes as proof of the Drs fraud.
Its fraud all the way around!
See post number 24.
This is just practice for scamming ObamaCare. You would think they have it down now with scamming MediCare and MedicAid, but I guess not. Practice makes perfect!
“No it should be pretty safe. The conservatives won’t come near us cause we will be in the middle of the union rally. Don’t worry about it.
Holly: You sure?
Shropshire: Sure, just you wait and see...
Micke: I don’t see a problem here....
Holly: Who are those peoople with the cameras?
Shropshire: Oh just teachers to whom I gave an excuse.
Holly: Uh...so did I. You think?
Shropshire: Nah... just teachers.
Imagine their surprise to find themselves on Drudgereport...
I would love to be a fly on the wall.
