    1 Board Action

    • Failure to keep adequate medical records  (6/4/2010)
    • Action Taken: Agreed Order with Terms and Conditions
    • Summary: Dr. Joseph Francis Mcwherter; License # E8713

      Nature of Complaint:

      On November 7, 2005, the patient visited the physician complaining of pelvic pain and having heavy vaginal bleeding. The physician’s progress note reflects that the patient did not want to have a vaginal examination that day. The physician’s assessment was that there was marked endometriosis and the patient was to be set up for laparascopy with possible presacral neurectomy and all indicated procedures. An abdominal sonogram of the pelvis was ordered and performed. The sonogram did not reveal any pathology. Based on the patient’s statement, the physician did not perform a pelvic examination. A Pap smear was recorded as having been performed when the patient was age 19, the result being unknown. The history indicated a previous laparoscopy in 2002. The physician performed the laparascopy on December 13, 2005, and there was extensive endometriosis, and a laser destruction of endometriotic implants was done. Nodules on the left and right utero sacral ligaments were removed and sent for pathology. The diagnosis of endometriosis was confirmed pathologically. The physician’s medical record for the patient is inadequate in that it contains an inconsistency in the operative report and in the H&P, and it does not accurately describe the physician’s examination. The physician does not admit or deny these findings of fact.

      Action Taken:

      The Texas Medical Board Orders that the physician shall be subject, but not limited to, the following terms and conditions:

      1. The physician shall use a practice monitor.
      2. The physician shall obtain ten hours of CME approved for Category I credits.
      3. The physician shall comply with all the provisions of the Act and other statutes regulating his practice.
      4. The physician shall fully cooperate with the Board and the Board staff.
      5. The physician shall be permitted to supervise and delegate prescriptive authority to physician assistants and advanced practice nurses and to supervise surgical assistants.
      6. If, after four periods of monitoring, there have been no recommendations made by the monitor, this Order will terminate upon the successful completion of the requirement listed above, in number two.
