Doctor Criminal Freight-Train Keeps Rumbling Right Into The New Year

We find it a damned shame that more than 6,200 physicians were either jailed or seriously punished for garbage-level misbehavior, in the single year of 2016 alone. Since 1985 – when the National Practitioner Data Bank was created in order to keep track of doctor screw-ups – more than 250,000 physicians have been logged into their secret files. That’s a preposterous fact.

So here’s your challenge for the day: Name ONE other profession that generates more crime? Just . . . one.

And it certainly appears that we Americans can look forward to the promise of even more  physician shenanigans this new year, can’t we? To underscore our point, here’s a peek at just a few of the 40 cases we have been made aware of, in just the first 2 weeks of 2017:


Dr Jose Ramos



Indiana MD Confesses He Took Part in Surgery While Drugged Up


Dr Sharon Pletcher




Penn State Physician Guilty in Maniacal Drunk Assault on a Police Officer



Dr Richard Rydze



Pittsburgh Steeler Doctor Faces Drug-Dealing Trial

    Add a lot more to the list, can’t save their own lives nor yours. These Doctors need termination or remediation failure to understand basic first aid. Tens of thousands laypersons in Ontario taught all the signs of respiratory emergency (drug OD), then trained to give chest compressions only.

    Layperson is eager to follow a clinicians instructions in the belief they are saving lives. Increases drug use and abuse loss of trust in the medical profession addictions and harm reduction councillors, creates a dysfunctional society. Don’t suffer any respiratory emergency you may be next.

    Toronto Public Health and other districts have been teaching the following since Sept, 2011. Protocol is still in plain view many health districts as of Jan. 13, 2017.

    Majority of harm is happening to non OD’s. Increases drug use and abuse dysfunctional society.
