On or about April 1999, the Board received a complaint against Respondent from Medicare Payment Safeguard regarding quality of care and billing issues related to Respondent's patient. Respondent treated patient on 88 consecutive days from approximately June 1998 to October 1998. The treatments were such as to not be medically helpful to patient and showed a lack of professional judgement in wound care. Respondent billed Medicare and collected a fee in an amount that was clearly excessive for the treatments as referenced above.
Dr. Brad Hayman shall be subject to a period of non-disciplinary probation. Respondent shall be placed on probation for the term of one year, during which time respondent shall be subject to a chart audit by the Board of all patients having undergone an oteotomy procedure of any of the 1st through 5th metatarsals (to include bunionectomy osteotomies) while under respondent's care.
