The Winkler County Nurse Trial, An Alleged Massive Conflict of Interest, and Morgellons #nurseup #nursefriendly

The Winkler County Nurse Trial, An Alleged Massive Conflict of Interest, and Morgellons #nurseup #nursefriendly:"The Winkler County nurse case and the problem of physician accountability  #nurseup #nursefriendly:"Let’s recap what happened, a story that reached its climax last Thursday. In 2008, Dr. Arafiles joined the staff of Winkler County Hospital (WCH). It did not take too long for it to become apparent that there were serious problems with this particular doctor. Mitchell and Galle, who worked in quality assurance were dismayed to learn that Dr. Arafiles would abuse his position to try to sell various herbal remedies to patients in the WCH emergency room and the county health clinic and to take supplies from the hospital to perform procedures at a patient’s home rather than in the hospital. No, it wasn’t the fact that Dr. Arafiles recommended supplements and various other “alt-med” remedies, it’s that he recommended supplements and various other “alt-med” remedies that he sold from his own business–a definite no-no both ethically and, in many states, legally. Mitchell reported her concerns to the administration of WCH, which did pretty much absolutely nothing."
