We, as citizens, must demand open discourse regarding problems in the medical community of Medical Fraud, Abuse and Neglect. The civil liberties of Medical Whistleblowers should not become casualties. We must not punish the “Truth Sayers” but instead create laws to protect their right to provide timely accurate information. Our government and medical community should acknowledge mistakes rather than seek to conceal them. We need to learn to value human expertise and analysis of information.
We need to build a better a better network of communication between the Medical Whistleblowers and those whose help we need. Our partners in this struggle to expose Medical Fraud, Abuse and Neglect come from many professional disciplines – law enforcement officers, legislators, social workers, therapists, patient advocates, the media and attorneys.
We must as medical professionals understand our own professional culture and the professional cultures of those other agencies and individuals we need to interact with. Often our own professional biases places limitations on our ability to understand and respond to law enforcement, legislators and attorneys.
