Joint replacements are the #1 expenditure of Medicare. The process of approving these medical devices is flawed according to the Institute of Medicine. It is time for patients' voices to be heard as stakeholders and for public support for increased medical device industry accountability and heightened protections for patients. Post-market registry. Product warranty. Patient/consumer stakeholder equity. Rescind industry pre-emptions/entitlements. All clinical trials must report all data.

ACTION ALERT !!! Please join me in supporting FDA employees that are doing their jobs.

LINK HERE: Give FDA Medical Device Safety Whistleblowers your support!

Stop the FDA's Harassment of Whistleblowers
The FDA's illegal program of singling out whistleblowers for special monitoring has become national news. When the FDA found out that employees had reported dangerous medical devices, it decided to squash the employees rather than the faulty products. FDA managers put industry interests above patient safety.

Senator Grassley and Representative Issa have now launched Congressional investigations of the FDA, demanding answers about why whistleblowers were singled out for special surveillance

Please follow the link above and support the federal employees that are doing their jobs:  protecting the citizens of the United States.
