DOCTORS WITH CRIMINAL OFFENSES
Nearly 1,000 doctors and surgeons have criminal records came across the wire from the Telegraph Media Group Limited in the United Kingdom.
Prompted calls from patients began to flood into the newspaper with complaints of doctors past and present offenses. It was said that none of the 927 physician’s information was available to the public. Out of the 927 doctors, 25 had convictions of bodily harm and three for grievous bodily harm, while three were caught in possession of indecent images of children. Other offenses included attacking their partners, harassment, weapon possession, threats to kill, perverting justice, fraud, kerb crawling-the act of driving slowly along the edge of the pavement seeking to entice someone into the car for sexual purposes. What!!!!!!!!!!!!
The United States of America has the same problem, where doctors are allowed to still practice medicine with criminal convictions. This information is secret to the general public and they keep it quiet in the National Practitioner Data Bank.
Should patients not be aware if their doctor is found guilty of a serious offense that could affect the care they’re giving? You would think so but Texas and across this country they have been keeping this secret. Tune in Thursday at 5:00 PM (CST) to find out more secrets. Hopefully your doctor has a license, a real license he/she went to school for.
