Abortion-referrals case back before Kansas board
Associated Press - December 2, 2014 7:50 pm
The State Board of Healing Arts on Friday upheld its 2012 revocation of the license allowing Dr. Ann Kristin Neuhaus of Nortonville to provide charity care.
A Kansas board is considering whether to continue barring a physician from practicing medicine after scrutinizing her referrals of young patients for late-term abortions and finding that she kept inadequate records.
Dr. Ann Kristin Neuhaus of Nortonville will be back before the State Board of Healing Arts next week.
She successfully challenged a 2012 board ruling that she conducted substandard mental health exams in 2003 for 11 patients aged 10 to 18. Her opinions about patients’ mental problems allowed the late Dr. George Tiller’s clinic in Wichita to terminate their pregnancies.
A judge earlier this year overturned the board’s revocation of Neuhaus’ license but agreed that she kept inadequate records. The judge sent her case back to the board.
The board has a hearing set for 10 a.m. Dec. 11.
