Exeter Hospital doctor reprimanded after wrongful death suit

CONCORD — An Exeter Hospital doctor who faced a wrongful death lawsuit was reprimanded this week by the state Board of Medicine, which found he improperly treated a Hampton woman who died from complications of a kidney infection.

Dr. Craig MacLean will be allowed to continue practicing but must have his license renewed and undergo eight hours of medical education on diagnosing kidney stones, patient safety and medical mistakes, the Board of Medicine stated in a May 7 settlement agreement with MacLean.

MacLean’s patient, Jacklyn Chamberlin, died at Exeter Hospital Oct. 27, 2016, while being treated for a kidney infection for which she sought treatment from MacLean three days earlier, concerned it was related to kidney stones that ailed her throughout her life, the agreement states. Chamberlin was given pain medication and discharged without a complete urinalysis on her first visit, according to the settlement agreement. READ MORE>>
