MEMORANDUM

Posted: January 9, 2015 10:40 AM
From: Representative Matthew E. Baker
To: All House members
Subject: Impersonating a physician
 
In the near future, I plan to reintroduce former HB 587 which increases the grading for a person who impersonates a doctor of medicine and provides medical treatment, from a second degree misdemeanor to a first degree misdemeanor, even if no actual harm to the patient results. Presently, impersonating a physician is treated as the same degree as impersonating a notary public or other licensed professional. This is true whether or not the person “treats” patients.

Last session HB 587 passed the House unanimously. Senator Scarnati offered this language as an amendment to HB 1357 in the Senate which also passed unanimously.

I have attached a copy of the legislation for your review.
