Sanford Hires Canned VA Director Shulkin

Hard-hitting investigative news source Sioux Falls Business with Jodi Schwann vigorously refuted the “sad” and “scurrilous” rumors that Kelby Krabbenhoft had lost the CEO-ship of Sanford Health over bad behavior. Krabbenhoft is clearly in charge and able to hire a new chief innovation officer whose bad behavior was a bit more than a sad and scurrilous rumor:

President Trump’s former Veterans Affairs Secretary, who left under an ethics cloud, has taken a top job with Sanford Health.

David Shulkin is joining Sanford as chief innovation officer.

“Secretary Shulkin is one of the most talented health care leaders in the country, and he brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to Sanford Health,” says Sanford Health President Kelby Krabbenhoft, “His unique perspective, clinical expertise and powerful voice will further Sanford Health’s continued development and diversification…” [Mark Russo, “Controversial Former VA Chief Joins Sanford Health,” KELO Radio, 2018.09.11].

Shulkin’s bad behavior came to light in February:

The 150-page report from the Office of the Inspector General revealed significant deficiencies, including:

• Patients receiving unnecessary or prolonged anesthesia.
• Problems in maintaining sterile instruments and equipment for medical use.
• Lack of accurate inventory of supplies and equipment that led to more government spending, while 500,000 overstocked items sat at a warehouse.
• Patient records and personally identifiable information stored in unsecured areas [Amanda Macias and Dan Mangan, “How Veterans Affairs Department Secretary David Shulkin Fell from Grace,” CNBC, 2018.03.28].
