But the NMSS protects itself quite well by obtaining confidentiality and non-disclosure agreements with those paid employees who leave or who get terminated. Why this is necessary for a non-profit organization indicates to me that there may be a lot to hide!
I don't believe that I indicated that the NMSS ought to say something. I replied to another reader's question by saying they wouldn't likely reply to such a news article (like you said, they weren't implicated) unless someone asked them to comment.
The whole tenor of this discussion has been to imply that the NMSS somehow should have something to say about the story.

Probably my own fault, by the way. I have real problems with anything that requires me to count. Even to two. I'm not kidding.
I don't believe that the NMSS uses NDAs for employees, with the possible exception of someone who has filed employment-related litigation. Oh, and by the way, as someone who has signed many an NDA and requested they be signed by others, here's a dirty little secret: Those things are wallpaper. No one takes them seriously anyway.
I was told differently and that's why you won't be getting the nitty, gritty details that you would like to see. I realize that trying to enforce an NDA can be tricky but the average person simply doesn't want to put him/herself in a position of that possibly happening.The whole tenor of this discussion has been to imply that the NMSS somehow should have something to say about the story. And that's just absurd. The article had no relevance whatsoever with anything the NMSS or anything that it does.

And then this WOULD relate and/or reflect on the NMSS because they also provide grants to those same doctors!
