About those "sick notes"

During the unruly protests that took place in Wisconsin in February, several health care "professionals" handed out "medical excuse notes" to participants. While any rational lay person would immediately recognize this as a major ethical breach, it's taken this long for said "professionals'" employer to weigh in:

"UW Health doctors who wrote sick notes for protesters at the Capitol in February face penalties up to a loss of pay and leadership positions, the UW School of Medicine and Public Health said Tuesday."

[ed: "UW" is "University of Wisconsin"]

Nice to see the University taking a principled stand.
