News has surfaced on the latest happenings with Conrad Murray, the doctor whom drug authorities say is responsible for the death of the late King of Pop Michael Jackson. According to an earlier story on BET.com, additional states have attempted to declare restrictions on the doctor’s future medical practices.
It has been ruled that Dr. Conrad Murray cannot use or administer propofol to patients. He must also refrain from the use of any anesthetic agent normally administered by an anesthesiologist. Murray also cannot use any other heavy sedatives or any form of general sedation in Texas as part of an agreed order issued by the medical board last week.
As of today, the Nevada State Board of Medical Examiners has been in contact with the Texas Medical Board, asking for info on how Texas was able to legally restrict his license so quickly.
Murray, who was working as Jackson’s personal physician, has been charged with involuntary manslaughter in the singer’s June 2009 death in California. Autopsy reports and records say the singer passed from the anesthetic propofol and other drugs administered by Murray. He has pleaded not guilty at this time.
