I worked at Hi-Desert Medical Center for over 10 years as pharmacy director. I was taken back to read the newspaper article on patient safety involving Dr Salhotra. He has been an active physician for over 30 years with thousands of patients treated with favorable outcomes under his care. He served as chief of staff and medicine in the hospital, during which time many protocols were developed for patient safety under his direction. He championed best patient care along with other physicians in the committee, so that not even a single medication error of severe nature was noted by the Pharmacy and Therapeutics Committee during years 2005 through 2015. This is evidenced from the successful Joint Commission surveys, which the hospital has every three years.

My sincere appreciations for all physicians of the Hi-Desert who have served community with utmost care and compassion; Dr. Salhotra is a legend for the Morongo Basin health care. They all have inspired me personally to be a caring health care professional. Thank you.

    This is what happens, character assassination, when you challenge the big pharma by dramatically reducing their profitable addictive drugs.
