Dr. Bryant F. Litchfield

On June 2, 2005 the Council of the College of Physicians and Surgeons of the Province of Alberta found Dr. Litchfield guilty of demonstrating a lack of skill or judgment or unbecoming conduct in that:
On or about September 13, 2000 he did perform a surgical procedure on the abdomen of his patient when he was not formally qualified to perform that procedure.
On or about September 13, 2000, he did perform a surgical procedure on the abdomen of his patient in his medical office in violation of Section 45(2) and Section 45(4)(ix) of the bylaws of the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Alberta.
On or about September 13, 2000, he did perform a surgical procedure on the abdomen of his patient, and he failed to create and maintain on the chart of his patient an adequate record of the surgical procedure performed, including the failure to record the amount of tissue removed and whether a surgical wound drain was used.
Following the surgical procedure performed on the abdomen of his patient, on or about September 13, 2000, he did fail to provide appropriate post-surgical care, including failing to appropriately address a significantly decreased hemoglobin level, and the presence of a hematoma and a seroma.
The procedure performed was an abdominal panniculectomy.
