Fake fingers to fool the boss at Brazil hospital

Fake fingers to fool the boss at Brazil hospital | Sports Management Deakin | Scoop.it
Five doctors at a Brazilian hospital have been suspended after they were accused of covering for absentee colleagues by using fake silicone fingers with their prints to fool biometric machines

Another television network said it was the head of the emergency room that ran the scam and that his daughter had not worked a day in three years but got paid all the time.

The mayor of Ferraz de Vasconcelos, Acir Fillo, said there might be as many as 300 hospital employees who do not exist, except for fake fingers with their prints, but who get paid anyway.

Sports Marketing @ BrockBusiness: Nike alters crisis management approach after Tiger Woods | Sports Management Deakin | Scoop.it

Jade Nicole Burman's curator insight, September 11, 2014 3:13 PM

This was a good example of being true to your own moral code of ethics. Rather than trying to make Oscar Pistorius look better, they terminated their contract with him.  Im proud of Nike for putting aside their image, and concentrating on what's actually right or wrong!
Way to go !
