Doctors forging patients records

A doctor's practice in the eastern suburbs of Melbourne has regularly forged patients documents.

Corpau has seen documentation pertaining to a patients opertation. The doctor has alleged that the operation has taken place over several days. In reality this type of procedure is a single admission type with one surgical procedure taking place.

Doctors obtain money from the government from the paperwork given in. The monies given depends on various factors including stitches.
It is understood that this is NOT an isolated example and that his is regularly practiced by doctors.

Doctors regularly scan the details of patients cards and fraudulently claim operations / admissions that have never occurred.

The authorities have been notified of this practice, and watch this space for the repercussions, if any.
