Also, it was alleged that the physician failed to document: symptoms and treatment plan for depression when there was a diagnosis of same in the medical records; dosages of the medications prescribed; justification for diagnostic tests ordered by the physician; and the reasons for continuing to treat and prescribe to the patient, after she had a positive drug screen.
