Poll: 43 percent of doctors say lying for colleague could be justified
Most physicians and nurses in a Medscape poll said they would not lie to protect a colleague, though a substantial number felt peer pressure to do so. The poll followed a Medscape Medical News story about a South Dakota surgeon, Lars Aanning, M.D., who reported last year that he had lied 15 years ago under oath about his partner's competence to protect him in a malpractice lawsuit.
