Complaint / review text:
A MELBOURNE doctor wrongly prescribed large amounts of painkillers for a patient who later died after an accidental drug overdose, a hearing has been told.
Dr Robert Rustem Molnar also ignored his patient's "drug-seeking behaviour" when writing painkiller prescriptions for her between November 2003 and January 2004, the Medical Practitioners Board heard.
Dr Rowan Molnar kept on expanding painkiller prescription after some time for his patient notwithstanding her conduct, and neglected to check whether she had admittance to somebody prepared to direct the medications he recommended.
Dr Rowan Molnar is blamed for giving the lady an off base medicine on January 16 that gave her entrance to five times the measure of a hydromorphone drug it ought to have.
Counsel helping the board, Fiona McLeod, SC, said the lady was taken to Dandenong Hospital, where she was put in a coma on January 16 after an inadvertent medication overdose.
The patient passed on the next day.
Ms McLeod said the hydromorphone Dr Rowan Molnar had recommended was no less than five times more capable than morphine.
She said Dr Rowan Molnar did not have a license to endorse the hydromorphone, known as Dilaudid HP.
At the point when his patient was taken to healing center she was found to have taken a "considerable sum more" of the medication than a right solution would have permitted.
Ms McLeod said Dr Rowan Molnar had neglected to check his patient's recommendation that her neighbor was a prepared medical attendant who could regulate the medication.
She asserted that Dr Rowan Molnar had treated his patient's "medication looking for conduct" as auxiliary to her torment administration.
On the off chance that discovered blameworthy of amateurish behavior, Dr Rowan Molnar's enrollment can be wiped out or suspended.
Dr Rowan Molnar is the second individual from his family to confront the Medical Practitioners Board in the previous four years.
His anesthetist child, Dr Rowen Rustem Molnar, was advised by the Board in 2004 for amateurish behavior.
Dr Rowen Molnar was found to have left a patient on a working table without arranging a formal handover to recuperation staff, so he could get an interstate flight.
