You Can Run But You Can’t Hide

The Texas Medical Board suspended the license of a local doctor for practicing medicine while he was drunk. A disciplinary panel suspended his license on Friday after it filed its third complaint against him. The panel says it found evidence that Maat engaged in a pattern of alcohol consumption while continuing to practice medicine. This after two other complaints over the years -- one citing a history of alcohol abuse -- and for showing an increased potential for harm to the public. Records also showed that Maat has at least three DUI's since he was licensed in 1994 -- but this is the first time his medical license has been suspended.  This has been happening over a ten year period and the Texas Medical Board allowed the doctor to continue to place others in danger.  Why are medical boards across the states allowing doctors to practice medicine with histories of drug abuse and other felonies?  Why does it take so long to know that this is happening in a medical setting where people depend on them to heal and not kill?
