Medical malpractice can come in various forms. Sometimes the accused is not even a qualified medical professional. This can be an especially frightening case, when you are taking prescription drugs and shots from a person posing to be a medical professional. Recently, a North Carolina man was accused of practicing medicine without license and authorities have now shut down his fraudulent clinic.
The investigation in this case is not completed and investigators have obtained warrants. The man has been charged with, among other serious allegations, identity theft as a physician. The prospect of being administered flu shots and other prescription drugs from a man who is accused of stealing a federal registration number is difficult to grasp. Medical errors are made by those who are qualified to be practitioners, so one can imagine the mistakes that could potentially be made by someone who is unqualified.
