Trump Made Walter Reed Personnel Sign NDAs In 2019

NBC News reports:

President Donald Trump has required personnel at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center to sign non-disclosure agreements before they could be involved with treating him, according to four people familiar with the process. During a surprise trip to Walter Reed on Nov. 16, 2019, Trump mandated signed NDAs from both physicians and nonmedical staff, most of whom are active-duty military service members, these people said.

At least two doctors at Walter Reed who refused to sign NDAs were subsequently not permitted to have any involvement in the president’s care, two of the people said. Anyone providing medical services to the president — or any other American — is automatically prohibited by federal law from disclosing the patient’s personal health information without consent.
