Accounting Control Fraud in the health care business
Health Care Renewal has the linky goodness. They conclude:
So the box score is one guilty plea to fraud charges, arrests for wire fraud. interstate transport of stolen money, witness tampering and harassment; for racketerring, white collar crime, and operating a scheme to defraud; and for engaging in prostitution; and violation of a no-contact order.

For people generally paid so well because they were thought to be the best and the brightest, should not our expectations be higher?
Simple answers to simple questions:
No. We live in a kleptocracy. This is the behavior we should expect.
UPDATE This, from comments:
Think, for a moment, of how these regimes treat their servants, the doctors, and their cash register grist, the patients. It is not pleasant being a doctor working for gangstas.
We're all in the same boat. Except those of us hanging on to life preservers, of course.
