GP found guilty of misconduct

The Medical Tribunal of NSW heard that during May 2010, a number of patients who attended the clinic near Wollongong for gastroscopy procedures developed symptoms associated with sepsis and later required admission to hospital.

The NSW HCCC alleged Dr Peter Sau Onn Chang committed breaches of infection control standards including failure to perform appropriate hand hygiene and the routine sharing of ampoules of two Schedule B drugs between patients.
