Conrad Murray

Agrees to Propofol Ban

4/9/2010 4:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Propofol BanThe Texas Medical Board
has officially prohibited Dr. Conrad Murray from administering Propofol or other heavy sedatives, TMZ has learned.

TMZ broke the story that Dr. Murray agreed to the restriction, which mirrors one of the conditions to Dr. Murray's bail in connection with the death of Michael Jackson.

Aside from administering Propofol, Dr. Murray is banned from administering other heavy sedative medications and can't put patients under. He is still able to prescribe other medications, including pain meds, anti-anxiety medication or local or topical anesthetics.

According to a rep for the Texas Medical Board, the license restrictions will remain in effect until the criminal case is resolved and "the Board has adequate evidence to show that Dr. Murray is competent to safely practice medicine."

It is remarkable how slow the Texas Medical Board is to deal with unethical doctors like these. It is not until I had my face mutilated by an unethical Texan doctor who took measures to remove negative comments about him online when I realized that unethical doctors do exist. Plastic surgery is not supposed to be a business, it is REAL SURGERY!

Murray was already acting illegally when he administered Propofol to MJ. Agreeing to some promise not to sedate anyone isn't going to make this guy any more ethical than before. I think it's sad a man who killed another with his malpractice still has a license at all. I'm not a MJ fan at all but I do believe in upholding medical and legal standards.
