More Investigating Needed In OH Doctor Probe

A review of whether Ohio’s medical board properly closed old cases of alleged sexual assault…or impropriety by medical professionals…has resulted in recommendations to refer 11 cases to law enforcement and reopen 91 more for further investigation. The subjects of those cases remain secret, at least for now…because the State Medical Board doesn’t disclose who is under investigation…unless the cases result in citations or discipline. The review of more than 1,200 cases from the past 25 years was launched in 2019…after the board learned that evidence of misconduct had been ignored in one case…its 1996 investigation, involving the since-deceased Ohio State University team doctor, Richard Strauss…accused of abusing hundreds of young men over two decades.
