Dr. Hsiu-Ying "Lisa" Tseng Found Guilty Of Overdosing Patients with Drugs
During a hearing over triple murder case in which a doctor was found guilty of over dosing the patients, a dramatic turn was witnessed as a prosecutor said that the case should be a lesson for all the medical practitioners.
Dr. Hsiu-Ying "Lisa" Tseng was found guilty of over dosing the patients by the Los Angeles County District Attorney Steve Cooley. The doctor has been charged for second-degree murder and 21 other felony counts.
It has further been informed that if the doctor is convicted, then she would be jailed for at least 45 years. However, Cooley said that the investigation over the case would be taken before deciding Dr. Tsengâ€™s punishment.
It has been informed that an investigation over the working of Dr. Tseng was carried out by the Drug Enforcement Administration and the California Medical Board four year back. The investigation was carried out as complains were received against Dr. Tseng regarding the irregularity of the prescription.
From 2007 to 2010, she wrote as many as 27,000 prescriptions. The figures show that on an average, she wrote 25 prescriptions. Following the irregularity of the prescription, her license was confiscated by the Drug Enforcement Administration in 2010.
It has been revealed that all over the world, there about 880,000 doctors who are allowed to prescribe drugs. Out of them, 200 to 300 cases are found in which irregularity of the prescription occurs.
The prosecutors are hopeful that through the Dr. Lisaâ€™s case, a lesson would be taught to those medical practitioners who are into the habit of overdosing the patients with the drugs. While commenting upon the case, Attorney Cooley said, â€śThis case was beyond anything else we have ever seenâ€ť.
