Virginia doctor’s license suspended due to excessive prescription refills

A medical practitioner in Virginia was suspended by the state’s Board of Medicines after he was found to be allowing excessive prescription refills to patients, WCYB reported on June 24.

In the documents obtained from the Virginia Board of Medicine, Dr. Dwight Bailey was effectively suspended on June 19. Dr. Bailey and his staff reportedly prescribed patients unnecessary amounts of opiate pain killers. Dr. Bailey also lacked adequate medical records that kept track of the prescriptions he issued to his patients. Five of Dr. Bailey’s over-prescribed patients died while under his care. In 2003, Dr. Bailey’s medical license was suspended because pre-signed prescription pads were regularly used, so the staff could hand out prescriptions in his absence.
