A state Board of Medical Examiners has reinstated the license of a doctor implicated in a Hepatitis C outbreak that spurred the largest notification of its kind in U.S. history, according to a report by Paul Harasim and Brian Haynes of The Las Vegas Review-Journal.
The board’s decision rested on whether the physician, as clinic co-owner, should be held responsible for the dangerous practices that infected his patients with Hepatitis C if they “most likely” occurred outside of his presence.
