    Researchers at the University of Magdeburg argue that workers should be able to excuse themselves from work for short periods to reduce the burden on family doctors. “The goal can be that employees should be able to report themselves sick for up to a week,” lead researcher Wolfram Hermann told Welt am Sonntag. Hermann said that workers needing sick notes accounted for a large proportion of short-notice visits to doctors, taking up too much of their time. …

    Madison - The state medical school disciplined 20 doctors and fined 11 of them up to $4,000 for handing out sick notes to demonstrators at last year's labor protests, newly released records show. The records, requested by the Journal Sentinel last year under the state's open records law, show for the first time the extent of the discipline given to those doctors by the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health. In several cases, doctors in more senior positions within the school also had to step away from those roles for a period of four months over one...

    Seven doctors who wrote sick notes for protesters at the state Capitol in February received reprimands Wednesday by the state Medical Examining Board. Two other doctors got administrative warnings, which aren't considered disciplinary action as the reprimands are. The medical board voted 6-3 to approve the reprimands for the six doctors from UW-Madison. The board voted 6-4 to reprimand the other doctor, from Dean Clinic. A board member from the university's doctor group abstained from the first vote. Two of the board members who voted no said they weren't allowed to talk publicly about why. The reprimands go on the...

    Via Gateway Pundit, I’ve diagnosed the situation and can offer a prognosis: Wrist slaps for everyone. These UW Health physicians were acting on their own and without the knowledge or approval of UW Health. These charges are very serious and in response, University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health and University of Wisconsin Medical Foundation, the UW Health entities that employ the physicians, have immediately launched an investigation of the reported behavior.The investigation will identify which UW Health physicians were involved and whether their behavior constituted violations of medical ethics or University of Wisconsin and UW Health policies...

    UW Health is investigating doctors who wrote medical notes last weekend excusing protesters at the Capitol from work, and the Wisconsin Medical Society has criticized their actions. “These UW Health physicians were acting on their own and without the knowledge or approval of UW Health,” UW Health said in a statement. “These charges are very serious.” The UW School of Medicine and Public Health and the UW Medical Foundation, the university’s doctor group, are investigating. “The investigation will identify which UW Health physicians were involved and whether their behavior constituted violations of medical ethics or University of Wisconsin and UW...
