Auburn ER doc charged with misconduct agrees to never practice again

Auburn, N.Y. -- A former Auburn Community Hospital emergency room doctor accused of not properly diagnosing and treating patients has agreed to never practice medicine again in New York state.

Dr. James Thomas Murphy, who joined the hospital's staff in 2010, entered into a signed consent agreement with the state Board for Professional Medical Conduct to settle charges that he practiced with negligence on more than one occasion and failed to maintain records. Murphy did not contest the second charge.

Murphy has already stopped practicing. Under the terms of the agreement, he can never reapply for a medical license in New York.

The board said Murphy failed to adequately diagnose and treat patients in the hospital's ER in 2010 and 2011. It said he also failed to admit three patients and inappropriately discharged another patient.

Wow does this mean he may go to another state and practice medicine?

Wasn't it Yetty Netty that said if your Dr.'s office plants are dying you better get another DR? Something like that?
