The allegation in this complaint is inappropriate prescribing of pain medication by Dr. Warbritton, to patient Paul Faulconer. A medical review of the case was performed by Dr. Cupp who submitted several follow-up questions. Dr. Warbritton also responded to the Board in writing, saying Faulconer’s healthcare has been complicated and pain management is essential. Kay Pratt (complainant) felt Dr. Warbritton prescribed Paul OxyContin, but Dr. Warbritton said he never prescribed OxyContin to Faulconer, only Oxycodone. Paul did receive OxyContin for pain management, but it was from the hospital following his surgery. Warbritton said Kay has not had much, if any, dealings with Paul’s medical issues.

The complainant said she took photos of medication prescribed by Dr. Warbritton, Attachment 1. ____________________________________________________________ DETAILS OF INVESTIGATION…show more content…
