Unsanitary practices in the Fremont clinic led to hepatitis C infections in at least 99 patients, several of whom died.” But it was all “Islamophobia,” don’t you see? After fleeing the country to avoid prosecution, “in Pakistan, Javed became a public health official and reportedly blamed the situation in Nebraska on anti-Muslim sentiment.”
Islamic Supremacist Chutzpah Alert: “Doc whose Fremont clinic infected patients with hepatitis seeks N.Y. license to practice,” by Rick Ruggles for the Omaha World-Herald, December 27 (thanks to LJ):
Dr. Tahir Ali Javed, whose Fremont cancer clinic infected dozens of patients with hepatitis a little more than a decade ago, has applied for reinstatement of his medical license in New York.Javed, 47, fled to his native Pakistan 10 years ago, when the severity of the hepatitis outbreak became known. His medical license in Nebraska was revoked. He surrendered his New York license.
In Pakistan, Javed became a public health official and reportedly blamed the situation in Nebraska on anti-Muslim sentiment.
Unsanitary practices in the Fremont clinic led to hepatitis C infections in at least 99 patients, several of whom died.
The Nebraska Attorney General’s Office pursued the revocation of Javed’s medical license in 2003. It accused him of unprofessional conduct and gross negligence for allowing staffers to reuse syringes, which contaminated large bags of saline with hepatitis. The saline was used to clean out implanted devices that administer chemotherapy and other medications to cancer patients, infecting patients with hepatitis in the process.
The allegations said Javed had been warned multiple times that his office used unsanitary practices in administering the drugs and continued to allow it.
The Attorney General’s Office also accused him of exploiting a patient to conduct a sexual relationship with her. The attorney general alleged that Javed, a cancer specialist, gave the woman a false diagnosis and told her not to seek treatment elsewhere because other providers would inform her insurance company and she wouldn’t be able to get insurance again.
