In the wake of the Auditor-General’s very worrying look into widespread falsification of data at Canberra hospital we’ve had a lot of commenters coming out of the woodwork to say it’s really no big deal.
What’s bit of industrial fudging of patient records between friends? So what if the systems in the Emergency Department are less sophisticated than the average pub cash register? And why would we want to root out those responsible for such dishonesty in an area requiring great trust? It’s only taxpayer money being allocated on the basis of these numbers right? Only political points being scored to win elections what’s the big deal?
So rather than let a few noisy commenters dominate we’re going to throw it out to a poll.
