In Fair Oaks, a suburb of Sacramento, a cardiologist is being accused of negligence by the Medical Board of California.
The board, in an accusation filed by the state attorney general’s office, is asking for dicipline that could end in the doctors license being suspended or even revoked in a case of alleged medical malpractice
The board alleges that the doctor misinterpreted a test, mishandled a follow-up exam, and failed to recognize that a patient needed timely care.
In June 2007, according to the boards accusation, the doctor performed an aortogram on the patient to check for blood flow in the aorta. The doctor did not document an abnormality that was detected on the test, which showed that there was little to no bloodflow to a region in the heart.
The day after, the doctor saw the patient again after a reported leg pain, but failed to perform a complete examination and did not recognize that the patient needed additional care quickly, the accusation said.
Three days later, another doctor saw the same patient and sent them to the emergency room, where it was determined they would need surgery.
