      Nature of Complaint:

      The Investigative Committee of the Nevada State Board of Medical Examiners (Board) filed a formal complaint against Stuart Hoffman, MD (Respondent) on June 16, 2010, charging Respondent with a violation of Nevada Revised Statute (NRS) 630.301(4), to wit: Count I: Respondent failed to use the reasonable care, skill or knowledge ordinarily used under the same or similar circumstances with Patient A when he failed and omitted to recognize a bile leak early on in the post-operative treatment leading to multiple medical deteriorations, including renal failure, hypotension and an exceedingly long hospital stay. Count II: Respondent failed to use the reasonable care, skill or knowledge ordinarily used under the same or similar circumstances with Patient B when he failed and omitted to timely recognize a bowel injury post-operatively, actively canceled a CT scan from being ordered which would have diagnosed the bowel injury easily, performed a surgery that was not likely to provide adequate drainage of a duodenal injury and did not provide access to the rest of the GI tract for feedings.

      Action Taken:

      On December 2, 2011 a Settlement, Waiver and Consent Agreement was approved and accepted by the Nevada State Board of Medical Examiners (Board), whereby, Stuart Hoffman, M.D. (Respondent) hereby agrees: Respondent is aware that the trier of fact, the Board, may find a factual basis in support of the formal Complaint against Respondent. Accordingly, in order to resolve the matter without incurring further costs and expense of providing a defense to the formal Complaint or to any other further amended complaint, and in exchange for the waiver of the Respondent's foregoing rights, Respondent has entered into this Agreement , and agrees: The Board may find that Respondent has engaged in conduct that is grounds for discipline pursuant to the Medical Practice Act, to wit: two (2) violations of Nevada Revised Statute Section 630.301(4) and NAC 630.040 by failing to utilize reasonable care, skill and /or knowledge ordinarily used by a physician in the same or similar circumstances as alleged involving Patients A & B under Counts I and II; Respondent shall pay the costs incurred by the Board to investigate and prosecute this matter; The Board shall issue a public reprimand; Respondent shall attend and participate, in person, in ten (10) hours of CME in laparoscopic cholecystectomy, cholecystitis, urinary fistula and GI related carcinoma.
