Medical Whistleblowers have truth on their side. They are courageous individuals committed to making a difference by helping prevent Medical Fraud, Abuse and Neglect. Medical Whistleblowers expose the abuse and neglect of our most vulnerable citizens and expose institutionalized patterns of wrongdoing. One person against a big medical corporation is not a fair fight. Those who control the medical corporation define the workplace and all of its rules and regulations and can affect actions against the Medical Whistleblower at the level of the Medical Board. The medical corporation enjoys a presumption of legitimacy and legal authority and can through extraordinary resources affect the actions of politicians, the media, industry, and the larger community. The Medical Whistleblowers of today bear witness to our courts and our legislature to expose the Achilles heel of Fraud and organizational misconduct. Truthful information used astutely to inform those who are empowered to make decisions, can be a very powerful political weapon in our society, capable of defeating money and entrenched corruption and greed. Like David who defeated Goliath, Medical Whistleblowers put the public interest above their own personal interests and even their own safety and security. As they act with integrity as citizens of our society, they deserve our support, respect and honor.
