Don’t have sex with your patients.

Apologies to KevinMD for usurping his ‘doctors gone wild’ series…

I thought this had been covered, but at least one more doc didn’t get the memo:

Doctor suspended over sex sessions in emergency wardThe Daily Mail logo


A hospital doctor who had sex with a former patient while he was on duty in the casualty department has been suspended for 12 months

Dr Timothy Davey, 46, was removed from his £60,000-a-year job after he admitted he was “sexually intimate” with the woman when he was supposed to be working.

The married father of two had treated the woman for a knee injury and then struck up a relationship with her after sending her flirtatious text messages.

A career probably ruined, a marriage most likely completely sundered.  And possible licensure actions!  A trifecta!
