Pediatrician faces suspension after unsanitary office conditions

After an investigation revealed unsanitary conditions in his office, a pediatrician in New Jersey was suspended.

Reports show that the doctor, Dr. Emmanuel J. Francois, was so disorganized that vials containing blood samples were improperly labeled and a stool sample was stored inside of a fridge. Investigators also found out that Francois used neither protective gloves nor hand sanitizer while taking care of his patients, who ranged in age from infancy to 18. According to the Attorney General’s Office, children’s safety was compromised under Francois’ unsanitary practices. Francois, who is currently placed in temporary suspension, is expected to appear in a court hearing.
