MARYLAND ATTORNEY GENERAL’S OFFICE CAUGHT IN A MIRE OF CORRUPTION

Maryland Attorney General’s Office Caught in a Mire of Corruption

 

 

 

On December 21st 2016 Mark Davis MD went before the Maryland Board of Physicians. The matters discussed below in this brief article were resurrected from 1990 during this hearing along with the contents of a fraudulent charging document concocted by attorney Robert Gilbert of the Maryland Attorney General’s Office, which he wrote in 2006. The charging document was so viciously false and its complexity so deprecating an e-book is being prepared for its presentation to the public. Needless to state Mr. Gilbert, in his legal capacity, was able to convince the Board of Physician members that his charging document was true though one of the two physician reviewers it was based on stated Dr. Davis followed the standards of care. Additionally Dr. Davis was cleared in the majority by an administrative judge 2007. Facts get in the way because lies make better news. Dr. Davis was told in writing he should never again apply for a medical license in Maryland though he passed a national test of competence in 2016. In our e-book we will discuss in detail how politicized and corrupt the Maryland Board of Physicians is and details of Dr. Davis’ disgusting treatment by them. Please read below. All comments are welcome. All documents related to this article are on the attached link.

 

 

 

As the summer receded in 1989 I made a huge mistake for myself, my family, co-workers and investors, I purchased a nursing home in Maryland. A toxic group of Maryland Administrative entities knew before the ink was dry on the contract of this facility, Poplar Manor Nursing Home, would close no matter what its new owners would do to save it. Anyone caught in the vortex of this transaction, including this author, would be pulled down into a never ending spiral of legal chicanery. A document noting this facility was on track to be closed was withheld from the potential new owners by the Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DHMH) and its attack dog the Maryland Attorney General’s Office. New management moved in on or about August 1989 and the latter two entities, who entrapped us, tried to move us out before 30 days was up. As medical director for 8 years I was not aware the facility had problems in categories outside of my control. The withheld document is part of a forthcoming e-book and included here as document 1. The State of Maryland’s parasites were not finished. They not only wanted the facility closed their intention was to bury the major owner, it’s former medical director. Their tools were a sea of lies, misrepresentations and legal entanglements for the end purpose, medical license revocation and removal of nursing home ownership. There was no coincidence that J. Joseph Currans, the Maryland Attorney General, was running for reelection during this time in 1990. This meant he needed a cause celebre to run on. He used Poplar Manor as one of his fulcrum’s for reelection. That is, he personally saved hundreds of patients from an evil doctor, 12 associate doctors and his approximately 160 workers. Curran’s wanted people to believe the ownership spent 5 million dollars to torture patients and run a nursing home into the ground. The narrative was false then as it is now to keep this physician out of practice in Maryland and keep another corrupt politician in office.

 

 

 

By the end of 13 horrifying months, orchestrated by Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DHMH), management was replaced. New physicians were brought in to work with patients and the facilities bank accounts were removed from our control and eventually emptied. Since there were no malpractice cases filed or complaints from anyone what was the basis for this unfounded change in the facility personnel. Two physicians from University of Maryland, Dr. George Taler and Dr. Timothy Keay were brought in to cover up the incompetence of the State physician reviewer, Dr. Lois Leonard. It seems Dr. Leonard was not qualified to review nursing homes or any other facility because she did not have the prerequisite training to do so. Her post medical school training was a 1 year rotating internship. Yet the DHMH hired her to monitor nursing homes and other facilities. She was not qualified to place a band-aid on a finger. Drs. Keay and Taler were profoundly involved in the following illicit activities.

 

 

 

1)  They were engaged to review physician services by the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, not the Board of Physicians, who was the only legal Maryland authority empowered to review licensed physician services during this period of time.

 

2) They did not follow the collective protocols of the Board of Physicians and the Maryland Medical Society to perform physician reviews which were in force at the time. Documents 2, 3,4,5 display their mishmash reviews which are nearly illegible, outside the standard of review and far from accurate.

 

3) In an affidavit filed by George Taler on July 5th 1994, affirmed under the penalties of perjury, Dr. Taler knowingly perjured himself with the help of the Maryland Attorney General’s Office by the following:

 

a) Document 6 and 7 is Taler’s affidavit.  

 

b) In Document 7 Dr. Taler claims he reviewed a representative sample of patients at the nursing home. This indicated he chose the medical records personally, untrue. Document 8 displays Drs. Taler and Keay were given the charts to review. The starred names were the patients reviewed by the State employed Physician, Dr.Lois  Leonard. Dr. Leonard was specifically sent into the facility to find anything she could wrong  with physician care, when there was none. Drs. Keay and Taler were sent in to cover up her work and confirm her lies. The evidence cannot be interpreted any other way. c) In document 7 Dr. Taler states he had no personal gain from the review. Yet in documents pages 9-11, which is the contract for Drs. Keay and Taler to review medical records, it states they  would paid over $4,000 in 1990 funds, more lies.

 

 

 

Perjury was okay because it was backed by Maryland Attorney General’s Office. Civil and criminal charges were based on erroneous medical record reviews. A nursing home was closed and 157 patients were displaced because of phony medical record reviews. Additionally one hundred sixty people lost their jobs because of an out of control health department and administrators wanting to move up the food chain. Upwards of a half a million dollars is unaccountable from the facility’s accounts. Most of all a God fearing physician was dragged through the media, the legal system and to financial catastrophe for absolutely nothing.

 

 

 

When Dr. Mark Davis filed case number 1819, September term, 1994 before the Maryland Court of Special Appeals the Maryland Attorney General’s Office took quick notice. Two attorneys from this self-serving corrupt office requested Dr. Davis to drop this case and in return they suggested they would enable him to have his medical license reinstated. He did drop the case and they helped him regain his medical license 1995. The Medical Board, by a unanimous decision, returned his medical license. The Board realized the initial case filed against Dr. Davis was nothing less than dreck.  If this case had been heard perhaps the current Attorney General of the time, J. Joseph Currans would have been brought up on charges. There is much more to this case. Attorney Gilbert must be outed for his erroneous statements before the December 21, 2016 Maryland Board hearing and the unfounded charging document he concocted in 2006. This article only touches the surface of the vast corruption in the Maryland Administrative authorities noted here. No patient was harmed in any manner by Dr. Mark Davis, yet hundreds were harmed by the authorities discussed in these pages.  Please look for the complete e-book on this case coming soon.

Confronting Infinity

 

 

 

Borders between life and death have moved from science fiction to exploratory science. Paranormal studies were once only a fringe study. Now the fringe is rapidly becoming main stream. Since man’s inception into this universe he has suspected there is more to being human than a physical self. The word soul has been named in a thousand different ways all with similar meanings: a detached ethereal component of the human body which lives on after physical death. A more modernistic approach to the definition is an incorporeal entity that exists at the quantum level which is indestructible and lives on after all physical activity ceases. Pick your choice both definitions imply a transition into another mode of reality. With great privilege and humility I was allowed to be part of the dying process of hundreds who I knew well in life. These patients and a few friends were aware their time was short in this living environment. One specifically stands out. A former teacher nearing the age of 95 was under my care in a nursing home. Her mind was as sharp as the proverbial tack. The subject of death often crossed her mind. She believed ( I am paraphrasing) a door opened somewhere to let the departed through.  I never saw any fear in her. All I can state from my humble perch is every human will confront this transition, believers or not, that there is an awakening somewhere else. This is one man’s opinion without proselytizing his intrinsic beliefs.

The Delinquent Author

15 Apr

A huge problem for many editors, proofreaders and book reviews is the delinquent author. After a fee schedule is agreed to, with the payment expected at the completion of the work performed, the author decides to play financial charades with you. My Paypal account is corrupted in some manner or form. Another approach is they do not return your e-mails once you indicate the work is completed hoping you will further reduce your fees. Still another format is I will pay you if the book sells. These and many other scenarios may be hard to contemplate yet they happen more than one would think. The obvious resolution to this problem is to get your money up from instead of utilizing the honor system and obtaining it on the backend. I have utilized the honor system because most authors who have asked me to help them are honorable people. Yet I am rethinking my approach. It is no fun when a person stiffs you for nominal fees requested. My question to the audience is: Should you collect your fees up front or request payment at completion of the work?

SEXUAL HARASSMENT: MANY FLAVORS FEW TAKERS

Sexual Harassment: Many Flavors few takers

 

 

 

Observers of current culture have watched as many men have been pulled into the vortex of sexual harassment. Tiger Woods lost huge as his libido got the best of him. Woods was forced to attend counseling sessions because he liked women. This must be a big business because others of equal note are being entrapped by their own so-called promiscuous behavior. If you are Bill Clinton you get an award while others are tarred and feathered. Now Bill O’Reilly is under the microscope for his latent urges. Thirteen million dollars, as reported by the press, has been paid out to various women who stepped forward with complaints, perhaps more to come. My question is: what flavor of sexual harassment did he display? Did Bill eyeball the woman’s better parts? Did Bill ask the woman to dinner? Perhaps Bill gave her a peck on her face or maybe he attacked a woman outright. I doubt the latter and for the former probably a minor bit occurred. What did Bill have to say about these questionable occurrences in his talking points? It appears his points were not talking on this topic. Word is out he may be on an extended vacation and or permanent one. Sadly I will miss this arrogant man who bloviated each weekday on his news/commentary program which set the tone for Fox’s nightly line up. Perhaps Bill should have picked a flavor few liked therefore he could have finished his career with a clean slate. Good luck Bill. Whatever decision you make Fox will be better off either way.
