专治肾病,狂开麻醉药,纽约亚裔医生“治死”3人后被捕

北美华人家园 · 2018年06月10日
经过联邦缉毒署(DEA)及纽约州多个机构两年的联合调查,一名法拉盛亚裔医生因涉嫌给病人开受
控制的止痛药过量造成三病人死亡,日前遭到缉毒署逮捕并被控罪。他被控2项二级过失杀人罪,
9项鲁莽伤人罪以及220项违法贩卖受控制处方药罪。
这名亚裔医生名叫劳伦斯·崔(Lawrence Choy),今年65岁, 原为纽约市曼哈顿居民,并在皇后区
法拉盛市中心的富兰克林大道开有一家诊所。一年前突然关闭这家诊所,逃往威斯康星州藏匿起
来。他日前在威斯康星州落网,于7日被引渡回纽约控罪,将在纽约受审。据联邦缉毒署的调查报
告,自2012年起,崔开始在他开设在法拉盛富兰克林大犯罪行为道诊所给病人开了大量止痛药处
方。他的诊所据称专治肾脏病。他给病人大量开出的处方药包括羟考酮(oxycodone)及许多其他受
控的药品。羟考酮是一种已被列入管理范围的麻醉药品。
由于开出的处方药剂量巨大,崔被政府部门追讨超过100万美元的税款。
联邦缉毒署表示,事实证明,崔开出的大量止痛药处方的结果是致命的,其中三名病人因为注射羟
考酮、Xanax和其他控制性止痛剂过量,最终死亡。死者包括35岁,家住皇后区牙买加的居民,衣
服店老板卡斯迪罗(Eliot Castillo)。他于2012年3月起到崔的诊所就诊。联邦检方的起诉书称,在没
有对病人进行任何的血液化验和其他病情分析的情况下,崔马上给卡斯迪罗开了羟考酮处方,以及
氯硝西泮(一种抗抑郁药物)和carisoprodol(一种肌肉松弛剂)处方。随着时间的推移,卡斯迪罗对羟
考酮等药物的需求与日俱增,最终成为典型的药罐子,被送进药物根治康复中心治疗,最终于
2015年2月死亡。据官方报告,卡斯迪罗死于药物过量。除了卡斯迪罗外,另有两名家住长岛的病
人也因为服药过量死亡。
起诉书称,近年来,崔的病人越来越多,不但来自纽约市,还有从远地闻讯而来的,包括纽约上
州、新州、宾州。在执法机构对崔展开调查后,他于2017年6月突然关闭法拉盛诊所,逃往外州藏
匿,最终还是在一年后被抓捕归案。

NEPA Doctor Found Guilty Of Drug Distribution Resulting In Death,
Money Laundering And Tax Charges

SCRANTON—The United States Attorney’s Office for the Middle
District of Pennsylvania, announced that Dr. Fuhai Li, age 53, of
Milford, was found guilty of unlawfully prescribing oxycodone and
other opioids to 23 former patients, including a Honesdale woman
who died as a result of using the pills. Dr. Li faces a mandatory 20-
year prison sentence for causing the woman’s death.
According to United States Attorney David J. Freed, the jury also
convicted Dr. Li of unlawfully prescribing oxycodone to a pregnant
woman outside the usual course of medical practice and not for a
legitimate medical purpose. That woman gave birth to an opioid-
dependent baby 11 days after Dr Li prescribed her 120 oxycodone
30 milligram tablets. A neo-natal specialist testified that the baby
spent ten days in intensive care withdrawing from the oxycodone
prescribed to his mother by Dr Li.

During the five-week trial before Senior U.S. District Court Judge A.
Richard Caputo, prosecutors from the U.S. Attorney’s Office
presented the testimony of 19 former patients and three former
employees of Dr. Li, eight pharmacists, three other physicians, an
expert on pain management, the medical records for 39 former
patients of Dr Li, and the testimony of federal law enforcement
agents and investigators from the Drug Enforcement Administration
(DEA) and its Diversion Division, and Internal Revenue Service
(IRS) special agents. Li owned and operated the Neurology and
Pain Management Center in Milford, Pike County, Pennsylvania. Li
was a physician licensed by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania
and authorized to prescribe Schedule II controlled substances for
legitimate medical purposes and in the usual course of professional
practice. The jury found that Dr Li repeatedly prescribed oxycodone
and other opioids outside the usual course of medical practice and
not for a legitimate medical purpose.

Former patients testified that Dr Li repeatedly prescribed them high
doses of oxycodone and other opioids every month over several
years without performing medical examinations and without
verifying their prior medical treatment. Evidence was Dr Li
repeatedly falsified patient medical records and made material
omissions in those records in an effort to legitimize the unlawful
prescriptions.
Prosecutors presented evidence that between Aug 2011 and Jan
2015, Dr. Li wrote 26,985 prescriptions for Schedule II controlled
substances, 99.37% of which were written for opioids. This
included 18,115 prescriptions for oxycodone, of which 12,129 were
written for oxycodone 30 milligrams, the highest dosage available in
short acting oxycodone. Other opioids frequently prescribed by Dr.
Li included methadone, OxyContin, hydrocodone and
hydromorphone.
Former patients testified that they became dependent and addicted
to opioids as a result of Dr. Li’s prescriptions. Evidence also
established that Dr. Li prescribed high dose opioids to patients who
he knew had recently completed drug rehabilitation and
detoxification programs, resulting in those patients becoming
addicted again to opioid pain medication.
Several former patients testified that they earned money by selling
drugs prescribed for them by Dr. Li and used part of the money to
buy heroin to support their own addiction. Some of those former
patients also subsequently sold heroin on the streets of PA, NJ.
One former female patient testified that she had sex with Dr Li on
almost every visit to his office during a four-year time period. Dr Li
prescribed that patient high doses of various opioids for
approximately four years. Two additional former female patients
testified to inappropriate sexual conduct by Dr Li during office visits.
DEA Agents seized more than $1 million in cash, hidden under
beds and in closets in his residences.
