Falsifying Health Records

In December, the New York Times reported on the widespread starvation of children in Venezuela due to its economic collapse. The government’s response: falsify the records.

“Doctors are censored in hospitals, too, often warned not to include malnutrition in children’s medical records.

“In some public hospitals, the clinical diagnosis of malnutrition has been prohibited,” Dr. Huníades Urbina said.”

And yet around the world where prescribed suicide and euthanasia are legal, the laws mandate doctor’s falsify death certificates as well so as not to report “suicide” as the cause of death.

The motivation is the same. While the laws are quite laxs regarding reporting and oversight, they mandate the falsification of records. That makes finding any abuses so much harder. What are they hiding?
