Governor Kasich is 'truly stupid' to allow the State Medical Board of Ohio to take women (not male) medical licenses for 20 years, subjecting women MDs to psychiatric evaluation after evaluation, for no patient complaints. To find a case, to see what evaluations of women MDs 'show' as the joke in Columbus goes. A fishing expedition of the most devastating kind. Complaints are processed, and women physicians disciplined for complaining to get their own medical records to consultants after medical mistakes - to allow a consultant to handle the complications of Ohio care so that the physician can work.
Asking for one's own medical records is 'making too much of bad care,' and a matter for Medical Board discipline in Ohio. How stupid have we gotten, how irrelevant, how crazy, how wasteful? Yet it is only the women MDs that get ordered to these psychiatric evaluations - when their personality conflicts with the male egos, eccentricities, and sexual addiction disorders. Guy's wouldn't ever be expected to 'sit through' this humiliation - they have better things to do ie sex. So while the woman MD's life is ruined, the male MD's sex live is a 'green pasture' - they just use the example of the woman MD who refused to go along - the poster child threat.
Asking for one's own medical records, is a matter for discipline for the Ohio State Medical Board - they just can't allow a woman MD to get her records and get on with her life in another state - can't allow someone to have a life. Stupid - truly stupid as it's 20 years, 5 psychiatric evaluations later, and the Ohio Medical Board has ruined the physician's life but doesn't have a case. Poor baby - they might have to pay some damages - but any damages would be less than the cost of even one more ridiculous evaluation. No one knows if the original 'confidential' complaint ever existed in most cases, or still exists - it's a virtual reality - a bluff - a scam.
Governor Kasich, with the shortsightedness that he showed regarding the high-speed rail issue, has refused to order a review of the 'stack' of ridiculous cases at the Medical Board of Ohio to get these 'innocent' physicians back to work - he can't even do his appointments on time. It's not about JOBS for Governor Kasich, it's about being STUPID - TRULY STUPID.
There are plenty of Ohio Appeals Court Judges who could review this 'stack' and make recmmendations - good ones. This is not reading that Anita Steinbergh DO is going to do - she only reads New York Times Bestsellers - and then told one woman MD what she should be reading to get her license back - truly ridiculous.
Truly stupid is going after a physician trying to recover from orthopedic medical mistakes in Ohio care - who hasn't finished physical therapy, workup, or gotten back to work. The orthopedics couldn't even be bothered to order physical therapy in this case - they were on to the next victim. Truly stupid is a 6th psychiatric evaluation for this, and any further discussion time at the Medical Board. This is not a patient complaint - it has to deal with the wrong handling of physician mistakes in Ohio - no medical mistake laws.
No training in handling mistakes, yet Physician Assistants are given courses in this as part of their curriculums - just not physicians. The woman MD couldn't 'invent' her records for the consultants, and the consultants wanted the two 'idiot' orthopedics off the case. The woman MD was only doing what the consultants asked as the condition for taking her case & 'fixing' things.
Physician mistake laws in 40-some other states allow the physician to admit the problem, to refer & to solve the problem before 20 years - to undo an incorrect procedure right away. The woman MD tried non-suit agreements, lawyers, talking to friends/Chiefs of the erring orthopedics - but it didn't work.
Calling the Medical Board to get her records didn't work - but this is not a matter for the suspension of her medical license. In every other state, physicians are allowed care-to-function, including all records, blood work & x-rays/scans, etc. - before any Medical Board actions for impairments, bone pains, or disagreements in the care process. What the hell is a 6th psychiatric evaluation of this woman's personal life going to reveal that 5 previous evaluations, and the Medical Board's website, haven't tried to detail in bad fiction?
