Days 4 and 5 of Kansas’ medical board hearing against failed abortionist and George Tiller collaborator, Ann Kristin (Kris) Neuhaus, continues to present evidence in favor of revocation of her medical license, which has already been limited to ‘charity care’.
Her defense team had several gaffes. On Thursday, defense witnesses who had worked for Tiller (including a Sara Love who now works for late-term abortionist LeRoy Carhart) were excluded because they were not properly isolated from hearing each other’s testimony. On Friday, the defense’s lone medical witness, Dr. K. Allen Greiner, caused the entire hearing to recess to an as-yet-undecided future date, to protect against him perjuring himself during cross examination.
Earlier in the day, Greiner fully backed Neuhaus’ standard of care, which is the issue of the hearing, and said it “exceeded that of ordinary family practitioners”. Under cross examination, however, Greiner’s bias was discovered, in that he:
- was a friend and mentor whom Neuhaus asked to testify when the defense could find no other;
- had placed Neuhaus in his KU program without her supplying any of the required medical references;
- had discussed the 11 files in question extensively with Neuhaus, instead of taking them at face value.
His “expert value” as a KU professor and family practitioner continued downhill when he was asked the rather perfunctory question of whether he was familiar with the professional regulations for patient record-keeping. He answered no, but he didn’t need to read them to obey them(!) He was given a chance to refine that response but stuck to it.
Greiner got red-faced as Healing Arts Board Attorney, Reece Hays, enumerated significant provisions of state regulations guiding patient charts that Neuhaus had herself already denied complying with.
The questioning was now focused on Greiner’s possible professional deficiencies. Hays started to question Greiner’s sworn pre-hearing testimony from June and discovered Greiner hadn’t finished reading his remarks or issuing final approval of them.
To protect Greiner’s own medical license and legal rights, the damaging cross examination had to cease until at least Sept 25, the legal deadline for amending his testimony. One wonders if he dare return?
