Pattern of Mistakes Found in Zoo Deaths (washingtonpost.com).

HealthLawBlog doesn't often cover developments in the world of veterinary medicine, but a two-part Washington Post series on problems at the National Zoo in Washington, DC, is irresistible. Yesterday's article focused on possible areas of malpractice, as well as shoddy record-keeping and medical records that have been altered after the fact, with many links to the documents themselves on the newspaper's web server. Today's article offers more of the same, with an additional, pointed review of the Zoo's oversight by the Smithsonian. Fascinating reading.
