Now we know where the money came for printing all those Christmas cards
In the KPMG report they found that a fund of $75,000 was given to NKF for the purpose of training doctors in improving the management of dialysis patients. This fund was utilised in part for the printing of Christmas cards for the "2004 one-to-one greeting cards mailing event" organized by the NKF.
I always wondered how NKF had money to send all those cards to people. Guess the training of doctors was not a priority.
Incidentally clinical staff were paid in "normal" standard fashion and their salary increments and promotions based on standard institutional practices, unlike that of non-clinical staff.
So I guess the doctors and nurses who worked for NKF can say they were not guilty.
