Dr. Ted Jefferson’s privileges revoked at Baptist Health Paducah
Dr. Ted Jefferson’s privileges at Baptist Health Paducah have been revoked. That’s according to a memo sent out to faculty and staff members on Tuesday.
The memo also says that the Kentucky Board of Medical Licensure is investigating Jefferson’s action.
Jefferson is facing terroristic threatening and disorderly conduct charges after what hospital administrators reported as a "meltdown" by the doctor during a procedure on January 26th. Dr. Jefferson was arrested the next day.
Jefferson has said that he made gun-related comments out of frustration when he received dirty surgical equipment from the hospital. Baptist Health Paducah fights those accusations, citing an investigation by the Kentucky Office of the Inspector General that showed Jefferson’s complaints were unsubstantiated.
