    • State: Georgia
    • No sanctions history found for the years that Healthgrades collects data.

    1 Board Action

    • Substandard Care, Incompetence or Negligence  (4/1/2011)
    • Action Taken: Education
    • Summary: Dr. Yashvant Dahyabhai Patel; License # 37326; Docket Number 20110048

      Nature of Complaint:

      A Georgia Composite Medical Board approved peer reviewer evaluated the treatment of a patient and concluded that the physician's treatment of the patient departed from and failed to conform to the minimum standards of acceptable and prevailing medical practice as follows: instead of parenteral Azithromycin, broad spectrum antibiotics should have been prescribed until the cerebrospinal fluid results were known. Additionally, consideration should have been given to initiating corticosteroids with the first dose of antibiotics. With an admission diagnosis of sepsis, the physician's treatment using Azithromycin was also inappropriate because this macrolide is inappropriate for sepsis. The physician also failed to transfer the patient by ambulance emergently as a direct admission to the floor or through the emergency department for a timely diagnostic lumbar puncture. The physician failed to appreciate the workup for suspected meningitis and utilize the standard of care of providing aggressive parenteral antibiotics at the outset of treatment even before the lumbar puncture was completed.

      Action Taken:

      1. The physician shall not engage in the practice of emergency medicine without the prior written permission of the Board.
      2. The physician shall obtain an additional forty hours of Board approved continuing medical education in the area of diagnosis of sepsis and meningitis.
      3. The physician shall submit proof of completion of the required additional forty hours of continuing medical education to the Board within eighteen months.
      4. The physician shall pay a fine in the amount of $5,000.00 within ninety days.
      5. The physician shall pay administrative fees in the amount of $350.00 within thirty days.
