Beware the fake conference.....

An internal hospital review in 1998 documented the expenses, and concluded that Urciuoli "may have committed a serious fraud upon the hospital" when he billed $5,998 for an eight-day trip to the Scottsdale Princess Resort in Arizona.


Urciuoli, who acknowledged that there was no health-care conference, conceded that he had made "a bad error in judgment."

The hospital's board of directors voted to keep Urciuoli. He repaid $16,000 in expenses, and later agreed to a civil settlement with the Rhode Island attorney general in which he reimbursed the hospital $85,000 that it had paid a Boston law firm for the internal review.


Ok, well, certainly an EXPENSIVE error in judgment.

It also goes to prove that while you and I would be fired this guy got a slap on the wrist. Of course it was an $85K slap but...
