Keeping Wayward Doctors in Check

by Categorized: Health, Politics, Transparency/FOI Date:

Coverage of Connecticut’s Medical Examining Board – charged with keeping unfit doctors away from patients – undeniably fell through the cracks at the Courant for several months after some staff changes. Recent reports by the Courant’s Josh Kovner show how critical that coverage is.

Today, Kovner reports on Dr. Carl Schiano, a Naugatuck general practitioner already on probation for  misdeeds involving prescription drugs and poor medical care. The latest allegations say Schiano abruptly shuttered his medical office, destroyed records, and, in a particularly bizarre development, moved in with a couple of his patients and stole and pawned their belongings.

The Medical Board will consider Tuesday whether to pull Schiano’s license.
