Chiropodist Who Swore At Patient Guilty Of Misconduct

Toronto Chiropodist Use Social Media To Reach Out To Patients

A chiropodist who kicked a police officer and swore at an 81-year-old patient was found guilty of professional misconduct today. Christine Johnson, aged 71 at the time, told the older woman youre not leaving my f****** clinic when she suggested arranging her appointment for another day. A conduct and competence committee of the Health Professions Council (HPC) heard Johnsons attitude changed during the appointment in Rhyl, North Wales, in March last year. She became abusive after a young man put his head around the door of the room to talk about a washing machine, the hearing in Cardiff was told. Chairman Ian Crookhall said she used extremely inappropriate and abusive language, which upset her (the patient). She said, I dont care about your f****** car and I dont care if you get a f****** ticket, told her she could not leave because the clinic door was locked and said I dont care about your f****** grandson when the woman said she should leave to pick up her grandson. Mr Crookhall said there was no misconduct before Johnsons attitude changed towards the woman, who was having her first appointment with the chiropodist. She also showed the woman a tray full of nail clippings, threw them in the bin and put the tray under her feet without cleaning it, but this did not amount to misconduct, the panel ruled. It found chiropractor her fitness to practise was impaired and gave Johnson, who was not at the hearing, a three-year caution order. She was also cautioned for another occasion when police were called to a domestic incident at her home in June last year after she had been out drinking. As she was being arrested she was verbally abusive and kicked an officer in the groin. She appeared at Denbighshire Magistrates Court where she was ordered to pay compensation of 50 and 50 costs after pleading guilty to assaulting a constable, restricting or obstructing a constable and disorderly behaviour. Mr Crookhall said: The panel finds that such conduct brings the profession of chiropody and podiatry into disrepute and undermines public confidence in the profession.

Grave of Lincoln’s chiropodist discovered at Highgate Cemetery

Researchers at Highgate Cemetery claim to have uncovered the grave of Abraham Lincolns chiropodist. Dr Issachar Zacharie was said to be the most favoured family visitor at the White House, valued by the former president not only for his skills but also as a sounding board for the opinions of the Jewish community in America. The discovery was made as researchers drew up a new map for visitors plotting the last resting places of the likes of Karl Marx, TV presenter Jeremy Beadle and author Douglas Adams. Dr Ian Dungavell, chief executive of Highgate Cemetery, said: Zacharies connection with Lincoln is fascinating, and especially topical just now. Were always keen to celebrate the exceptional achievements of people buried here at Highgate Cemetery. People know us for Karl Marx, but this is a place to reflect on all those who have gone before us, famous or not. Dr Zacharie died while living at an address in Mayfair and was credited as being founder of the Masonic Order of the Secret Monitor. He is buried in the East Cemetery near a piano memorial, commemorating classical pianist William Thornton. The map has been produced to coincide with the introduction of new entree prices for visitors from tomorrow (March 1). http://bayviewwellness.com/massage-therapy/ Dr Dungavell added: We dont expect to see Daniel Day-Lewis round here, but you never know.

Chiropodist accused of inflicting pain on purpose

It is a good question and I hope I can help with a good answer. But do not read on if you do not like the subject of feet! I have just got back from a trip to the chiropodist. Related articles Keeping pace with medical advances 28 August 2006 Having for a number of months self-treated unsuccessfully what I thought was a verruca, I decided it was time to get some professional advice. The chiropodist did a fact-find on me my medical background, did the verruca hurt or cause me any problems? before carrying out a thorough examination of my feet (even the one without said complaint). He confirmed it was a verruca and explained how notoriously difficult verrucas are to treat, adding that, depending on ones age, they can take literally years to eradicate. But, he said, a lot of people do not get anywhere with the treatments available at the local pharmacy. In fact, acid was the best treatment but he was not going to prescribe that for me. I was reassured, better informed and came away confident that do nothing was a reasonable course of action. I had taken advice from a professional who knew what he was talking about and he had not tried to sell me anything. His advice was simply do nothing. Did he bill me? Yes, of course. He is a professional and he delivered a professional service. So in answer to Nicks question: yes, of course you can charge a client when your advice is do nothing as long as doing nothing is good advice based on your experience, skills, qualifications and expertise.
