Broward Health Board’s failure to provide any effective oversight into the activities of Corporate Counsel’s legal department has allowed Broward Health’s legal czar Barrett to weaponize the IRO process against those she feels are against her in the organization.  The cost of Barrett’s misuse of Broward Health’s legal resources is humongous – in the millions of dollars.   Details are largely …

INDICTMENTS AND BREACHES OF ETHICS ARE ENDEMIC AT BROWARD HEALTH

In Broward Health, Corporate Management, Original Contentby Dan Lewis1 Comment

In the sometimes bizarro world of Broward Health, breaches of ethics and a Civil War is brewing just below the surface.  One side is Lynn Barrett, Broward Health’s Corporate Counsel. Remarkably it appears the other side is CEO, Bev Capasso, recently emboldened by her loosely negotiated employment contract.  Broward Health’s Board of Commissioners seems to split among the two camps.  Then …
