Lubbock doctor on public reprimand

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - A Lubbock medical doctor has agreed to an order of public reprimand after failing to recognize acute renal failure in a patient.

On August 21, 2009, Dr. Hugh H. Wilson Jr., M.D. entered into the public reprimand and it requires that he have a practice monitor for one year and that within one year he take and pass the Special Purpose Examination (SPEX). He is also required to pay an administrative penalty of $1,000 within 90 days.

Dr. Wilson is also required to obtain 20 hours of continuing medical education in the following areas:

  • five hours in medical record keeping
  • five hours in risk management
  • five hours in general prescribing practices
  • five hours in the diagnosis and evaluation of kidney diseases

The action was based on Dr. Wilson's failure to recognize acute renal failure and refer a patient to a nephrologist or admit the patient to the intensive care unit.
