Doctor with a fake diploma worked in a hospital for two years
A clinical psychology doctor working at a premium hospital in India has been arrested by police for allegedly practicing using a fake diploma for two years. According to Indianexpress, this case came to light when a social worker complained. He admitted that someone left an envelope containing documents related to the doctor’s fake degree and professional information outside his home in April.
Based on the document, he conducted an investigation and found that the doctor’s degree claimed to be issued by a public university in Kanpur, Uttar Pradesh, was fake. After receiving the complaint, the police conducted an investigation and verified that his title was fake.
The fact that the perpetrator has been practicing with a fake diploma for two years provides a valuable lesson for organizations, including hospitals, about the importance of conducting an employment background screening.
Employment background screening ensures that all medical practitioners are permitted and qualified to practice in their respective fields. Employers must be equipped with crucial information before hiring an individual. This will ensure the safety and well-being of all stakeholders.
