Los Angeles, CA, USA June 17, 2012
Nirbhay Singh, a psychologist and consultant who, according to the LA Times, “led the troubled effort to overhaul California’s public” has recently raised “concerns about cronyism and the quality of his work” which directly impacts the quality of patient care and general welfare.
Following allegations, Singh abruptly resigned from his California job on the west coast of the U.S. after violence in the hospitals continued and it was exposed that contracts were repeated awarded to Singh’s friends and family.
This investigation focuses on documentation in question as he obtained additional contracts to work on the Federal level in the states of Connecticut in North East USA, Washington, D.C. the capital of the U.S. and the state of Georgia on the southern coast of eastern U.S.
Singh maintains that under his direction patient care improved, but did it? or is he making claims to keep himself from further investigation and possible prosecution?
The Los Angeles Times claims: “consultants.. have built lucrative careers offering expertise on all sides of the reform process. In their revolving roles as federal experts, state advisers and independent monitors, they are able to recommend one another or evaluate each others work — sometimes with the direct approval of Justice Department lawyers. The department has no conflict-of-interest policy governing such consultants.
