Bedford Doctor Fined by Board of Medicine


Bedford, VA - A Bedford doctor has been reprimanded and fined for allowing a prescription to get into the wrong hands.

According to the Virginia Board of Medicine, Dr. Brian Buchanan admitted he gave his Director of Nursing pre-signed prescription blanks to use in medical emergencies.

The board says the unnamed nursing director used one of those blanks to prescribe 60 doses of a drug used to treat bipolar disorder and schizophrenia to someone who was not a patient of Dr. Buchanan.

The board order does not say if the nursing director also faces disciplinary action.
