    • Misprescribing or Overprescribing Drugs  (6/4/2010)
    • Action Taken: Agreed Order with Terms and Conditions
    • Summary: Dr. Santiago A Zamora; License # F4720

      Nature of Complaint:

      The issue in this investigation was the physician’s care and treatment of one patient. Specifically, it was alleged that the physician, on three separate occasions, failed to adequately perform a physical exam on the patient and failed to adequately document a history and vital signs. Furthermore, it was alleged that the physician inappropriately prescribed Hycodan, a narcotic medication, for the patient, which resulted in an accidental overdose of the patient. The Board found that the physician’s prescribing regimen was inappropriate, but otherwise found violations consistent with Board Staff’s remaining charges.

      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 for eight consecutive monitoring cycles.
      2. The physician shall successfully complete at least eight 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. The above-referenced conditions shall continue in full force and effect, without opportunity for amendment, for one year following the date of the entry of this Order.
