  • 11/27/2007 | Case No. 07-20873-1
    • The Nevada State Board of Medical Examiners met in an Emergency Meeting, pursuant to NRS 241.020, to consider the Complaint and Request for Summary Suspension of License against Dr. Swaine. The Board concluded that unforeseen circumstances had arisen and exist that pose a risk to the health and safety of the public and that required immediate Board action. Dr. Swaine tested positive for controlled substances in May, July and October of 2007, and his positive test in October of 2007 occurred while he was on leave from his out-of-state treatment program. Dr. Swaine practiced medicine surreptitiously after being told not to practice by Dr. Peter A. Mansky, Executive Medical Director of the Nevada Professionals Health Program ("NPHP"), pursuant to the terms of Dr. Swaine's NPHP agreement, in October of 2007, while he was on leave from his out-of-state program. Dr. Swaine managed to obtain leaves of absence from his out-of-state program to return to Las Vegas on two separate occasions, and the Board was concerned that he may do so again and practice medicine again, against the professional advice of the Executive Medical Director of NPHP and Respondent poses a risk to the health, safety and welfare of the public and the patients he sees and treats. Pursuant to NRS 630.329, the Board ORDERED that Dr. Swaine's license to practice medicine in Nevada be suspended pending proceedings for disciplinary action pursuant to the Complaint filed against him, or until further order of the Board.
