         What this points up is the need for hospitals, clinics, and so 
forth to scrutinize their vendors more carefully.  That means ALL of their 
vendors.  This is pure speculation on my part, however my guess is that too 
many people, agencies, business, etc., are depending too much on the 
government regulators, instead of doing their own investigations and 
background checks.  You would think -- wouldn't you? -- that when (for 
instance) a hospital's reputation is on the line that it would do its own 
checks, instead of farming them out to some regulator.  That is not meant 
as a poke at the regulators either.
