Free to carry on working: The chiropractor who broke patient’s neck… then told 999 call-handler she thought he’d had a stroke
The Daily mail says: The family of a patient who suffered a broken neck and died during medical treatment have hit out after his chiropractor was controversially cleared of misconduct and allowed to carry on working.
The widow of John Lawler, 80, said she was ‘devastated’ by the decision to clear Arleen Scholten, who used the title ‘Dr’ despite not being medically qualified.
Mr Lawler died in hospital the day after being left a quadriplegic when he suffered ‘irreversible’ spinal damage during an appointment with the practitioner.
