Medical board revoke license of medical doctor who said mask-wearing can lead to carbon monoxide poisoning



The medical license of an Oregon doctor who falsely claimed that wearing masks can lead to carbon monoxide poisoning, has been revoked.



Steven Arthur LaTulippe who is no longer allowed to practice, according to records from the Oregon Medical Board, was found to have engaged in "8 instances of unprofessional or dishonorable conduct, 22 instances of negligence in the practice of medicine, and 5 instances of gross negligence in the practice of medicine." He was also fined $10,000.



Newsweek reported that LaTulippe’s license was first suspended last December and then upheld after the board found he operated in a way that constituted an “immediate danger” to the public and presented a “serious danger” to public health and safety.



Records revealed that the suspended doctor never asked patients whether they had been in close contact with someone who exhibited COVID-19 symptoms or tested positive for the disease. LaTulippe had also asked his receptionist to screen individuals for COVID-19 by looking at the patient's facial expression rather than asking common screening questions.



He "had trained his receptionist 'to look at [the patient] and just take a look at them and see if they look sick,' and, if the patient was 'smiling and happy,' the receptionist was instructed to ask how the patient was feeling," medical records say.
