What's up with the whistleblower and the hospital's administration? Why would administrators allow people under investigation for wrong doing continue to work? Suspend them or is it the SFW mentality?
Oh No

Heard Admin knew, lots of people involved, feds will be there a long time sorting this one out. one of the drs fled to DR then came back, and is now in NYC. Millions in fraud, lots of questionable activity with drug dispensing, and prescription writing, lots of luck with the argument: I'm incompetent and stupid, I didnt know what was happening. Start with the CEO and work your way down DEA

Numerous felonies, and a misdemeanor for Dr. Strangelove; wow, must be time for an audit of the free samples of un-recorded controlled substances at the clinic.Where are the administrators now,probably on an extended xmas vacation far away from the barrage of questions, and those to come. This time the "elite" is not wearing teflon, and everything will stick. Too bad about your friends at CPH, Nicole Duve; too bad you cant keep it quiet. Too many people at the hpospital are rating about it everywhere. You may as well tell the media; it'll end up a bunch of editorials anyway. Ha Ha Ha !

The hospital should come clean about what it knew and when it knew it; you can't just run away from supervisors (dr.s) who run clinics with no regard for the law or for their patients. Big Money must be changing hands ON THE MEDICARE/MEDICAID side, and what about the drug samples left unaccounted for and unsecured? who takes the hit for that one? A complete investigation with media by the state and federal govt is necessary to put this hospital back into compliance.

According to an email from Becky Sutlife, Canton Potsdam Hospital Administrative official, to "All Users Email: "Please be advised of the following: this message is being sent in an effort to keep you informed (really she meant "spin")of events affecting CPH before they appear in the media. As is often the case, reporters have very little lead time in which to put together a story; then the editor(s) decide whether it needs more work (more work than some employees know)or can run as is on the evening news or be fed out to a website. We may see this tonight or tomorrow, or it may end up getting buried by "bigger" news. Leaders, please post on your comnmunication boards. Nice attempt at trying to spin some propaganda on the "clinic." it's no more medical practice.... warrants signed.... let's give the doctor's lawyer time to sort this out for the poor boy. where was the SLC Drug Task Force on this one? Where was the DA's Office on this one? it was a dr spo protect him, protect the image and reputation of the hospital, right? What about the patients? what about the law? Dear John, are you listening?

Dr. Ravelo still at large on felony warrants. canton-Potsdam Hospital in denial regarding its responsibility--but not for much longer. Let's dance!

Funny no one can find Dr. Ramon Ravelo, who has an established clinic in NYC. I wonder who is hiding this man; could it be some nc people are aiding and abetting Dr. Ravelo?
class warfare

Class warfare is in full force today as Dr. Ramon Ravelo, charged with 6 felony counts, and 1 misdemeanor count was released to the supervision of the SLC Probation. If this was a poor person, and I mean Jean Valjean, the person would be thrown in jail until trial or a guilty plea bargain deal. There is a distinct difference in the application of our laws, and in a judge's notion of justice when the medical elite or professional class has transgressed the law. Oh, he's a good guy, let probation have him, he's not a flight risk. BS! confiscate this guys passport so he cannot leave; put him in jail until trial. 5 felonies means he can only plea bargain one--what will nicole duve do now? she's from the potsdam political node, and azllowed this situation to just go on and on. No justice no peace MFs

how does this happen under the noses of the hospital administration? does this hospital follow and state or federal mandated regulations or what? did everyone attend everyday the leadership conferences? who was in charge at this hospital, obviously not a ceo or nursing services vp. what's up with that? I heard people complained non stop about Ravelo to to the administration--was it dismissed as daytime soap opera? sounds to me that procedures were not followed, and people trying to do their jobs were ignored. nice job canton potsdam hospital, another scandal--same crap different day
Double Standard

Oneida, NY

#12 Jan 6, 2010
A double standard exists for felony arests: if one compares the statistics in SLC, one finds that connected professional people are released to probation supervision, but poor people are incarcerated until trial. six felony counts and no incarceration for Dr. Ramon Ravelo? Come on, what public trust or confidence can the we have have when aq man like Ravelo gets to continue medical practice, and be released oon probation. If he wsn't a flight risk, why seize his passport? If he didn't threaten the hospital, why station a cop there? where was the hospital administration when all this felony activity was going on? Surely, individuals complained to the administration about Ravelo? As I understand it, Ravelo was accomodated and given extra time to liquidate assets for a legal war chest, and in order to line up liars as witnesses in court. where was hospital administration?

they're soaking up medicare and medicaid monies paid by state and federal govt; why do anything; from a botom line perspective, just go along to get along--it's the money stupid.
