More on fake-note-real-docs in Wisconsin

The UW school of medicine has reviewed the incident and is about to issue penalties:

“Personnel action will be based on the specific nature of the offense and the level of the physician’s involvement,” the statement said. “The consequences range from written reprimand to loss of pay and leadership position.”

That's about all they're saying.

Concerning one of the docs:

Dr. Lou Sanner, a family medicine physician at UW Health, told the Associated Press he wrote hundreds of medical excuses from work for protesters because they were suffering from stress.
“Some people think it’s a nod-and-wink thing, but it’s not,” he said.

Well, no, not according to the new medical ethics.

The state medical board has yet to take action.
