    1 Sanction

    • Substance Abuse  (12/14/2010)
    • Action Taken: Suspension
    • Summary: Philip Wade Hunt, MD License # 25613 Nature of Complaint

      On or about October 7, 2010, the physician’s hospital privileges were suspended due to concerns that the physician was reporting for duty in an impaired state. The physician admitted having a problem with possible alcohol addiction. The physician has been in contact with the Tennessee Medical Foundation (TMF) and voluntarily checked himself into an inpatient alcohol treatment program.

      Action Taken

      For the purpose of avoiding further administrative action, the physician has entered into a Consent Order with the Tennessee Board of Medical Examiners in which the physician agrees to the following and is not limited to the following.

      1. The physician’s Tennessee Medical License is immediately Suspended for not less than two months.
      2. The physician must successfully complete the 90 day inpatient alcohol treatment program at which he is currently enrolled.
      3. The physician must enter into an advocacy and monitoring contract with TMF for not less than five years.
      4. Upon obtaining an Order of Compliance lifting the suspension, the physician’s medical license will be placed on Probation for not less than five years, with terms and conditions.
      5. The physician must pay the actual and reasonable costs of prosecuting this case; said costs not to exceed $2,500.00.

      The Tennessee Board of Nursing takes this action to protect the health, safety, and welfare of the citizens of Tennessee.

      March 23, 2011 – Order of Compliance

      The Tennessee Board of Medical Examiners finds that the physician has compiled with the prior Consent Order’s requirement for lifting the suspension of his license and for placement of his license on probation; it is therefore ORDERED that the physician’s suspension is lifted and the physician’s license is placed on Probation.
