A doctor from Oregon who said mask-wearing could lead to carbon-dioxide poisoning got his medical license revoked
An Oregon doctor who falsely described carbon-dioxide poisoning as a risk of wearing face masks has had his license revoked.
As of September 2, Steven Arthur LaTulippe was no longer allowed to practice, according to records from the Oregon Medical Board. LaTulippe also received a $10,000 fine.
An investigation conducted by the Oregon Medical Board found that LaTulippe engaged in "8 instances of unprofessional or dishonorable conduct, 22 instances of negligence in the practice of medicine, and 5 instances of gross negligence in the practice of medicine."
Investigators wrote that his decision to flout COVID-19 guidelines like mask-wearing was irresponsible and "actively promoted transmission of the COVID-19 virus within the extended community."
Medical authorities in other states are now issuing warnings that they might react in the same way:
JACKSON, Miss. (AP) — Physicians who spread misinformation about the COVID-19 vaccine could now have their license to practice medicine suspended or completely revoked, according to a new policy adopted by the Mississippi State Board of Medical Licensure.
The policy, adopted on Sept. 7, says that doctors have an “ethical and professional responsibility” to practice medicine in the best interest of their patients and share factual and scientifically-grounded information with them.
“Spreading inaccurate COVID-19 vaccine information contradicts that responsibility, threatens to further erode public trust in the medical profession and puts all patients at risk,” the policy reads.
