An interesting article. Medical device manufacturers just keep on giving. These days it is all about the sale.

“It is alleged that the deal Dr. Burnam, Burnam, and St. Jude struck was that Dr. Burnam would prescribe St. Jude defibrillators for his patients as a quid pro quo for hiring his son. Burnam also would receive commission points with a guaranteed floor of $200,000 per year. As part of the deal, it is alleged that the doctor would receive compensation for engagements and so-called research projects.”
