The last LTC I worked at had a Medical Director (MD). He would come to work in military fatigues and tell the nursing staff that he was a Colonial in the military and had to catch a plane at the Air Force Base to go to Washington to see the President of the United States. Other times he came in with a Jacket and shirt with a CIA emblem and flashed the nurses an FBI badge with his name and picture on it claiming to have been sent to the facility by the FBI to keep an eye on things. He even had his Medical Assistant at his private practice answer his cell phone as "Officer Jenny" and tell the nurses who called that the MD was on an FBI mission. The MD would even email the nurses that he was unavailable due to a mission he was on. To really keep us in tears he told us that he was dying of pancreatic cancer. Then there was the time where one of the employees had to bail the MD out of jail for beating his wife. One day I got fed up and called the Board of Medical Quality Assuarance. I was shocked to find out that this MD was a convicted felon, currently on 2 probations, 1 was for a felony the other for beating his wife. I called his wife who told me she was his X-Wife and said that the MD was a pathological liar and gambler. I guess that the MD was in the gambling halls when we were trying to get hold of him with his cell phone turned off so that he didnt get distracted while rolling the dice. Turned out he was not in the FBI, military, CIA etc (like they dont take convicted felons). He signed off physcials on employees he never examined & diagnosed someone with a fatal illnees that they did not have. He also took 3 Klonopins and 2 vicodins a day that were not prescribed for him. If he ever did return a call his speech would be all slurred and he would be taking about being shot at on an FBI mission. The owner of the LTC where this MD is over about 20 of them
is aware, but doesnt care.
