Previous Hearings

Committee: Discipline
Decision Date: 13 Jan 2012
Summary:

On January 13, 2012, the Discipline Committee found that Dr. Hung-Tat Lo committed an act of 
professional misconduct, in that he failed to maintain the standard of practice of the profession. 
 
Record-keeping 
 
Dr. Lo failed to maintain the standard of practice in record-keeping with respect to Patient A. The 
patient's record was largely illegible and most entries contained scant information. Changes to 
medications were made at the last three appointments without documented communication with 
Patient A's family doctor, who was managing the patient's medications on a more consistent 
basis. Risk assessments and their conclusions were not documented.  
 
Dr. Lo also failed to maintain the standard of practice in record-keeping with respect to fourteen 
of fifteen patients. Patient records were largely illegible and transcriptions were required for 
review. The patient encounter entries were generally scant. Most charts did not have the initial 
history, diagnosis and treatment plan charted in any detail. There was a general lack of pertinent 
negative findings, and mental status exams and risk assessments were not documented. 
    
Care and Treatment 
 
Dr. Lo failed to maintain the standard of practice in his care and treatment of Patient A with 
respect to his collateral fact gathering and follow-up. Dr. Lo also failed to maintain the standard 
of practice in his care and treatment of two patients, in that he: 1) failed to adequately monitor 
the Lithium level of one patient and failed to make the necessary inquires that would have led to 
the disclosure of the patient's thyroid carcinoma; and 2) managed an alcoholic patient with 
out-dated treatment and inappropriate use of antabuse. 
 
On February 7, 2013, the Committee ordered and directed that Dr. Lo shall: 
 
1.    undergo, at his own expense, a re-assessment of his practice within 12 months which 
      shall include a review of his documentation and record-keeping, his appropriate 
      prescription and monitoring of Lithium in clinical practice, his communications with 
      family members and family physicians, and his identification and referral to specialists of 
      patients in his care with comorbid alcoholism;  
2.    abide by all recommendations provided by the Assessor; 
3.    attend for a reprimand on a date to be fixed within 3 months; and 
4.    pay costs of $3,650 to the College within 30 days
