Why did the owners of a residential treatment center try to stop a physician from reporting a child sex scandal to authorities? Why did they fire her when she did report it? Watch Linda Adair, MD, an Austin child psychiatrist, tell her story. Senate Bill 1500 by Sen. Robert Duncan (R-Lubbock) would allow many hospitals across the state to hire physicians directly. The bill passed the Senate and is in the House, where TMA is working with lawmakers to add protections for physician autonomy and patient care.
