What does a state senator do on his holiday? He reads a mind-numbing audit of a local institution. Awwwwww, what wonkiness.
Senator David Shafer (R-Duluth) spent his labor day poring over the recent much ballyhooed Grady audit and came up with some interesting conclusions.
According to the report, Grady requires Morehouse faculty physicians to provide 12 times as much documentation as Emory physicians. That is completely backwards. While Emory physicians divide their time between Grady and Emory’s own hospitals, Morehouse doctors practice only at Grady. If the two schools are to be held to different standards, it should Emory that is required to keep more records, not Morehouse.
Perhaps it's time for Morehouse which does not have a competing hospital to take a larger role the administration of Emory?
