Report a bad doctor to the authorities, go to jail? : Respectful Insolence

Report a bad doctor to the authorities, go to jail? : Respectful Insolence

I just found out via one of the mailing lists I’m on of a very disturbing case in Kermit, Texas. Two nurses who were dismayed and disturbed by a physician peddling all manner of herbal supplements reported him to the authorities. Now, they are facing jail:

That’s appalling.  Read the excellent post (Orac’s a truly gifted, and prolific blogger), that points out the Texas Medical Board has made it clear the nurses did nothing wrong.

Astonishingly bad.  I’d echo one of the commenters in Orac’s post that these two nurses may soon be the richest people in Winkler County.
