    I thought the FBI article was the best. http://www.fbi.gov/newark/press-rele...ommon-practice

    As it focuses more broadly on the "company culture" of Maxim that bred this type of thing to begin with. Supervisors, managers, etc were involved. I dislike how some of the other news articles focus more on the nurse/mother involved, when it was much more than this!!

    Many nurses on allnurses have expressed concerns of many types about Maxim. Complaints have been consistent across the USA. Sadly many of these threads/posts have disappeared from allnurses. At least now with official indictment and news articles, the truth can be stated and not censored. Many of the problems at Maxim stem from the company culture on sales and their business model which is clearly problematic.

    I have wondered how much Maxim paid this site to have those links removed. It's sad that people can't read the truth about them. Indeed.com still has all of their comments up thought.
