What Joe Paterno Could Have Learned About Disclosure from Health Care

Penn State University is aflame, its President, two senior officials, and sainted football coach Joe Paterno out the door after 46 years. A former assistant coach, Jerry Sandusky, is under indictment for multiple sexual assaults against young boys over a 15 year period. Health care used to be renowned for its insular culture of secrecy and inability to do right by its victims. It has come a long way. I would like to think that health care CEOs would have responded more honourably and more swiftly than Paterno to a similar crisis.
