A Flash Flood Watch is in effect through Sunday evening for most of Eastern Kentucky. Another round of heavy rain is likely early on Sunday and could lead to new high water problems. Remember if you come across a flooded road way to "Turn Around, Don't Drown!"
HARLAN, Ky. (AP) - A doctor practicing at Harlan ARH Hospital has been suspended by the Kentucky Board of Medical Licensure after receiving an anonymous tip he was prescribing diet pills to the nursing staff.
The Lexington Herald-Leader reported (http://bit.ly/1n91vVZ ) that the federal Drug Enforcement Administration concluded that Dr. Donald Ramsey, of Knoxville, Tennessee, did not have a Kentucky DEA registration, which meant that he was "illegally prescribing controlled substances in Kentucky."
The suspension came after the board began investigating a complaint in February that Ramsey was prescribing twice the daily recommended dose of the appetite suppressant phentermine to hospital employees and their spouses.
The board on Tuesday filed an emergency order of suspension that prohibits Ramsey from practicing in Kentucky.
