Jack Walker Speaks With The Dallas Morning News Over Disturbing Medical Malpractice Case

A disturbing story out of the Dallas area caught our attention last week. A case working through the federal court system seems to have revealed cases where nurses at Frisco-based Novus hospice facilities were allegedly ordered to overdose patients by the facilities’ CEO. So far, three of 16 defendants have entered pleas in the case with more to come.
Our own Jack Walker consulted with the Dallas Morning News to help provide perspective on this emerging case. "These intentional acts? This is horrific," Walker said, adding that if the allegations are true, "this is probably the worst that you could see because all of this is for a business purpose."
For more on this $60 million case that centers on Novus attempting to overcharge Medicare for services that were either unneeded or simply not provided, see this article over at dallasnews.com.
