If a doctor is charged with liability, do you think his license should be automatically suspended?
A local doctor has been charged in the Terre Haute wrongful death of one of his patients, reports WTHI-TV.
The doctor is accused of prescribing narcotics to patients with a history of drug abuse. According to officials, he would have patients undergo invasive procedures they didn’t need to get the prescription drugs.
One patient with a history of drug abuse died from narcotic use prescribed by this doctor. The doctor has been indicted for charges related to fraud and other bodily injuries.
As investigation continues, the doctor’s medical license is still active. Do you think it shows negligence on the part of the state that this doctor is still practicing?
