And the fraud just keeps on coming, albeit somewhat delayed on our part.
Dr. Hamid Safari, the Kaiser Fresno perinatologist who was accused of unsafe practices and causing the deaths of two babies, was cleared by the Medical Board of California and tried to get his job back. Of course the MBC practically requires a [...]
This isn’t the first time Kaiser Permanente has interfered with a union vote, which is why its Labor-Management Partnership is such a huge farce. We have been receiving complaints from Kaiser employees for years about the leaders of the SEIU working against labor for the benefit of management and their own wallets. Of course it [...]
Dr. Richard Della Penna M.D., a former Kaiser physician and one of America’s leading medical experts in Elder Care and the treatment of Special Needs Patients· (“SNP’s) will file a lawsuit against Kaiser Permanente including The Permanente Federation, LLC, Kaiser Foundation Health Plan, Inc., and Kaiser Foundation hospitals as a result of Kaiser’s calculated plan to deny legally mandated proper treatment to approximately 57,000 seriously disabled and chronically ill patients in California, Colorado and Georgia because it just didn’t want to spend the money.

From the LA Times:
Kaiser suspends accused doctor
Co-workers questioned the competency of Hamid Safari, who handled high-risk pregnancies at a Fresno hospital.
By Charles Ornstein and Tracy Weber, Los Angeles Times [...]
[Same old story: complaints were ignored, patients died, whistleblowers were retaliated against, and Kaiser denies any wrongdoing regardless of copious evidence to the contrary. It happens so often we would be bored if it wasn't so damned tragic. Scroll down to the bottom of the story for a link to the original report about this [...]
[The only thing more reprehensible than Kaiser's failure to protect its patients from this known repeat malpractice offender, is its PRBS release defending its despicable actions. Kaiser Thrive Exposed joins Justen Deal in his demand for the resignation of The Permanente Medical Group CEO, and lead obfuscater, Dr. Robert Pearl. In the meantime, Kaiser CEO [...]
The Kaiser Papers has just posted a detailed declaration by whistleblower Dr. William Moores, in the case of past Kaiser San Francisco Medical Center Chief of Cardiovascular Surgery, Dr. Terry McEnany. This guy was so incompetent and dangerous he makes Jayant Patel look like Marcus Welby, MD.
