As per reports, it has been revealed that the Queensland Medical Board has failed to take action against a Gold Coast Doctor, who has allegedly caused several deaths. Recently, he was blamed for causing premature death of an elderly person by switching off the oxygen supply at the time when he was still alive.
Queensland Health investigator Jo Barber said that she was shocked to know that no action has been taken against the Gold Coast doctor, who has caused so many deaths and was still allowed to continue his practice.
Barber said that the board should be blamed for it as they did not conduct fully fledged investigation against the doctor. She further affirmed that she has started her investigation and has found that an elderly woman, who lost her life, was not ready to die. She would have been alive of the doctor would not have turned down the oxygen.
Investigation report has revealed that the woman was not able to communicate verbally, but used to communicate through a special communication board. In her medical reports also it has been found that woman was able to communicate her decisions.
However, the doctor turned down the oxygen level to its minimum level, which was unable to fulfill the requirement of oxygen in whole body. Barber said that she also has a proof that the woman was trying hard to breathe before dying.
"She lingered for several hours before dying. The nurse managing her care was extremely distressed”, said Barber.
The nurse, who was handling her, was quite distressed as she could not understand the problem and after few hours, the lady lost her life. Barber, who has been into crime beat, was of the view that the doctor should be penalized under murder case.
