A California prison psychiatrist who was paid more than $800,000 last year is under investigation and suspended amid allegations that time records were falsified, it was reported Wednesday.
Dr. Mohammad Safi’s pay in 2011 included more than $503,000 in on-call pay to make sure he was available to respond quickly to emergencies, the San Jose Mercury News said.
Safi, 54, is a supervising senior psychiatrist at a Department of State Hospitals facility within Salinas Valley State Prison in Monterey County. He lives in Newark, about 43 miles from the prison.
