OHSU faces 'whistleblower' suit

Former surgical resident says the Oregon Health Sciences University kicked him out for raising awkward questions. In a federal wrongful termination suit filed against OHSU last fall, David Ostad, MD, claimed he was dropped from the University's plastic surgery program because he voiced concerns about his boss's billing practices. Ostad's suit does not assert that billing practices actually were illegal or fraudulent, but the issue remains a sensitive one for the University, coming as it does on the heels of a federal probe into Medicare billing practices at academic hospitals.
