A physician facing 122 charges of medical malpractice and negligence is finally facing the possibility of losing his license. After repeated acts of medical malpractice, including allegations in pending lawsuits by patients that the physician sent one patient into a coma and caused great pain to another, the physician may finally be unable to practice.
These allegations of negligence and medical malpractice are even more egregious considering he has surrendered his license, lost his license, or had his license revoked in at least six other states. Unfortunately, it is still unclear whether the physician will or will not be allowed to practice in the future.
Such cases illustrate the need for continued lawsuits for negligence and medical malpractice because of the medical community’s inability to police itself. Perhaps further litigation will cause physicians to realize that repeat acts of negligence and medical malpractice are unacceptable.
