Previous Hearings

Committee: Discipline
Decision Date: 05 Apr 1995

In April 1995, Dr. de la Rocha pleaded guilty to a charge of professional misconduct, as defined in s.61(3)(a) of the Health 
Disciplines Act, 1990, as amended, in that he had been found guilty of an offence relevant to his suitability to practice.    The 
Discipline Committe accepted Dr. de la Rocha s plea of guilty and found him guilty of professional misconduct.   
Consequently, the Committee imposed the following penalty: 
   1. Dr. de la Rocha's licence to practice was to be suspended for a period of ninety days. 
   2. This period of suspension was itself to be suspended, provided that Dr. de la Rocha, within fifteen days after the date 
      upon which this Order became final, filed a written undertaking with the Registrar to prepare a proposal for a protocol 
      for use in community hospitals, concerning the withdrawal of life support from terminally ill patients, and provided 
      further that: 
      (a) he submitted to the Registrar, within thirty days of filing the written undertaking, an organizational plan for 
          the development of the proposal for the protocol; 
      (b) the proposal for the protocol addressed the pharmacological management of symptoms, as well as the 
          subjects of informal consent, ethics, patient autonomy, and the involvement of the family and the family 
          physician in the decision-making process; 
      (c) in the course of preparation of the protocol, Dr. de la Rocha reviewed relevant literature and consulted widely 
          with experts in palliative care, ethics and critical care, and with patients' rights organizations; 
      (d) the proposal for a protocol was of such a quality as to render it suitable for submission to a peer-reviewed 
          journal, and was submitted by Dr. de la Rocha for consideration for publication by such a journal; 
      (e) Dr. de la Rocha, within 270 days of filing the written undertaking, submitted to the Registrar a copy of the 
          proposal for a protocol, and also written confirmation that he complied with sections 2(b), 2(c) and 2(d) cited 
   3. In the event that, having filed the written undertaking referred to in section 2 above, Dr. de la Rocha failed to comply 
      with the deadlines contained in sections 2(a) or 2(e) cited above, his licence to practice would thereupon be 
      suspended for a period of ninety days, such suspension to commence immediately following such failure to comply. 
   4. These penalties were to be recorded in the Register.
