  • Professional Misconduct  (6/3/2010)
  • Action Taken: Reprimand
  • Summary: Dr. Jaime Escanellas; License # 0101050866

    Nature of Complaint:

    The physician admitted that he had long-standing, serious concerns regarding the competency of another physician with whom the physician was involved in a business partnership. The physician for many years did not discuss these concerns with the other physician or report his concerns to administrators at the medical center where both physicians worked. The physician was concerned regarding the other physician's ability and skill to interpret and perform transesophageal echocardiograms. The physician from approximately 1998 to 2007 corrected mistakes made by the other physician without the other physician's knowledge. The physician performed transesophageal echocardiograms on patients for whom the other physician had already performed TTEs.

    The physician admitted for a number of years that he intentionally subverted the quarterly peer review process at the medical center in order to keep the other physician's mistakes and deficiencies from coming to light.

    The physician admitted that he did not review all work done by the other physician and the other physician may have made errors of which the physician was unaware.

    The physician in 2007 reported his concerns about the competency of the other physician to medical center administrators. The physician was issued a reprimand and required to attend a program on medical professionalism and ethics which the physician completed in January 2009.

    Action Taken-Consent Order

    The physician has been issued a Reprimand by the Virginia Board of Medicine. The physician within thirty days shall provide the Board written certification that the physician has read and shall comply with the laws governing the practice of medicine (Title 54.1, Chapter 29 of the Code); and the Regulations Governing the Practice of Medicine, Osteopathy, Podiatry, and Chiropractic (18 VAC 85-20-10 et seq.).

    June 9, 2010-Terms Terminated

    The physician has complied with the 06-03-2010 Order. The Virginia Board of Medicine has terminated the terms placed on the physician's license. The physician currently has a full and unrestricted license in the State of Virginia.
