ABSTRACT
An ongoing scandal at a respected medical institution in New Jersey is yielding a host of lessons for risk managers. Observers say the situation is a clear example of why health care institutions need a good compliance program. • The institution is facing multiple lawsuits, including from a whistle-blower. • Leaders at the institution acknowledge that compliance oversight was weak and needed improvement. • The head of the legal department has been implicated, and the case illustrates how risk managers could be held accountable when scandal strikes.
