State Report: OSU Medical Workers Engaged in Wrongdoing
COLUMBUS (Ken Hines) -- Authorities are examining a report from the state inspector general that alleges an Ohio State University employee received improper benefits from a vendor who has since been hired by the college.
The report states that Wexner Medical Center worker Shawn Brown accepted $4900 in meals and entertainment -- including a bachelor party and tickets to OSU football games -- from former Accu-Tech Corporation employee Matt Daugherty from January, 2009 to February, 2012.
Brown allegedly assisted Daugherty in gaining employment at the Wexner Medical Center after he left Accu-Tech, despite the fact that he lacked a required certification.
The Wexner Medical Center's Vendor Interaction Policy forbids vendors from providing staff members with food or entertainment, according to the inspector general's report.
The inspector general's office began the investigation after receiving a complaint about OSU's hiring practices in July, 2012. The report has been forwarded to the Ohio Ethics Commission, the Franklin County Prosecutor, and the Columbus City Attorney for review.
