Yea, big difference between this and political accusations though, don't let politics completely infest your mind and take it over.

This guy had his license suspended so far, and the accusations will be fairly easy to prove. Hospitals have inventories of these things, and if as the article states

Patankar alleged used them on at least five patients before discarding them because supplies for replacement catheters had been ordered but had not yet arrived, the state's complaint alleges.

it will be easy to see by an inventory count. If he had 5 left before the new shipment and he saw 10 patients, well that's 5 too many.

OK..thanks. Now that my dinner has digested, I'm going to go find out what a rectal catheter is and how it operates. Might be something that can be sterilized and used again, if no more are on-hand and a patient really needs to "use" it.

These were single-use pooper scoopers that got used multiple times. Dunno how else to put it.

Always wondered about the psyche of someone, who purposely choses to follow a career, that would have him looking up other peoples rectums, 8 hours a day, for 35 years?

How bad does he have to love money?

I can only think that this is human error. There are loads of things used in hospitals that you would be amazed to find out have been reused and others were you would be shocked to discover they are only supposed to be for single patient use.

There are people that pay for other people's poo to be stuck in the intestines in order to get beneficial bacteria to aid in digestion.

Poo transplants happen, y'all.

Happy new year

Wow. I feel sorry for these people:


The committee heard conflicting testimony from Patankar’s medical assistants about the reuse of catheters. Committee members resolved the discrepancies in favor of the state, finding evidence that 82 anorectal procedures were performed in Patankar’s office between Jan. 1 and Nov. 30, 2017, but only five catheters were ordered during that time.


82 people that shared catheters.


Patankar allegedly instructed his medical assistants to wash the used catheters in soap and water, soak them in bleach solution for 30 minutes, then rinse and air dry the equipment.

Once the catheters were dry, they were put back in their original packaging for reuse.

Even when a catheter began breaking down from over-bleaching, Patankar ordered his medical assistant to continue using it, the state alleges.


At least he somewhat sanitized them after each use. Still, pretty gross.
