Via @nytimes: #Military Hospital Care Is Questioned; Next, Reprisals.
A former military surgeon at Womack said he was passed over for promotion after he said that his supervisor had failed to properly examine a patient who later died of cancer. A psychiatrist who worked at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in Ohio said her supervisor tried to oust her after she complained that residents were not properly supervised. A former anesthesiologist at San Antonio Military Medical Center said his supervisor initiated a review of his credentials after he questioned why she failed to insert a breathing tube in a patient who later died and why another doctor gave the wrong type of blood to a patient.
