NEW: RI Doc Suspended For Prescribing Controlled Meds For His Wife

Thursday, November 15, 2012

 

Rhode Island physician Arnold Rosenbaum has been suspended for prescribing controlled substances for his wife, according to HEALTH.

A Rhode Island physician has been suspended for prescribing controlled substances after prescribing those very medications to his wife that didn't meet standards, according to the Rhode Island Department of Health (HEALTH).

Arnold Rosenbaum, MD, had already come to attention of the Rhode Island's Board of Medical Licensure and Discipline for doing the same thing in 2008, at which time he promised to stop prescribing his wife controlled substances and that she would be treated by another physician.

However, Rosenbaum was found to have prescribed 38 prescriptions for his wife of Schedule 2, 3, and 4 controlled substances between March 31, 2009 and April 3, 2012, according to HEALTH.

Rosenbaum has been placed on a 2-year probation that includes multiple obligations for education on prescribing controlled drugs and medical ethics, as well as on medical record keeping. His prescription writing and medical documentation will be monitored for two years as well.

At the conclusion of that period, Rosenbaum's suspension will be reviewed, according to HEALTH.
