No Discipline For Physician's Failure To Supervise

The Vermont Supreme Court has held that a physician is not answerable in professional discipline for failure to supervise his physician's assistant.

The assistant was reported to the physician as a possible source of illegally prescribed opiates. The physician reported the concerns and the assistant admitted the misconduct.

Charges of failure to supervise were then brought against the physician. The court here found no basis to impose professional sanctions. (Mike Frisch)
