How disgusting! First we have police officers lying to hide their wrongs, and now we have surgeons doing the same thing! Sadly, no amount of training or care in selecting people to work as law enforcement officers or surgeons can prevent them from doing wrong. The lesson to be learned here is to realize that perhaps ANY doctor can and will lie and take action to hide his or her errors or mistakes from the patient and family. Other people go to jail for doing bad things, but not surgeons and police officers, because we need them so badly. Better that we let a few crooked cops and crooked surgeons keep working, than that we lose their valuable services. There is a lesson there for aspiring crooks.
