Dr. Murray: I Won't Put Them Under in Texas

4/5/2010 1:41 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned Dr. Conrad Murray struck an agreement with the Texas Medical Board which will prohibit him from administering Propofol or other heavy sedatives.

Sources tell us the agreement mirrors the current condition to Dr. Murray's bail in his criminal case -- the doctor cannot administer or prescribe Propofol. He is also barred from administering "any other heavy sedative medications that should generally be administered by any anesthesiologist. And he's prohibited from sedating patients."

We're told Dr. Murray has signed the order and the Texas Medical Board will announce it on Friday.

Nevada has not imposed a similar prohibition to Dr. Murray's license.

Well that is bs, he should not be doing that anyway and most cardiologist would not consider giving their patients propofol. This is no restriction he is still allowed to practice with his clearly impaired judgement.

I'm shocked this man even has one patient left to treat. Everyone on the planet knows he killed the King of Pop. Who would want him to be their doctor?

This is not something unusual. Most if not all physicians who are NOT anesthesiologists or, for that matter, nurse anesthecists would not be 'allowed' to administer profonol outside the in-hospital or outpatient setting operating room. Cardiologists, Gastroenterologists, Dermatologists, Urologist, Neurologists, Internal Medicine, Family Practice et al. are NOT permitted by license to administer medication that only is allowed to be administered by a specific practitioner, under a specific license/training, under a specific circumstances, and in a specific setting. Murray knew this...the medical board is just reinforcing not punishing.

I think TX would be a great place for him to practice putting people "to sleep". Heck, they have the largest number of executions in the country. I believe Dr. Murray might have found his new calling in life.
