Medical board orders NC OB-GYN doctor to stop practicing medicine

HENDERSONVILLE, NC (FOX Carolina) – The North Carolina Medical Board has ordered an Asheville obstetrician to stop providing care to pregnant moms or delivering babies. Records indicate Hayes moreover practiced in Hendersonville & is licensed in South Carolina. The board ordered that John Hayes could no longer practice medicine in the state after three babies died during or after Hayes assisted in home births. Board reviewers ruled that Hayes’ diagnosis, treatment & overall care in all three cases was “below the standard of practice & care for doctors practicing in North Carolina,” according to documents released by the board. Hayes’ practice focused on home deliveries & the doctor did not have hospital privileges in the state. Hayes was moreover licensed to practice in South Carolina, yet it lapsed at the end of 2005, according to state licensing records. The NC Medical Board said he moreover had licenses in Sierra-Leone, Sri Lanka & Nigeria. Officials said they were not sure if the licenses in those locations were still active.  Copyright 2015 FOX Carolina (Meredith Corporation). All rights reserved.
