A family doctor who sent a dying infant home with instructions to give him water and juice with vitamin C and who failed to report criminal driving convictions has been stripped of his medical licence. In punishing Howard Wu earlier this month, the discipline committee of Ontario’s medical regulator noted the doctor had a history of problems that included previous findings of professional misconduct. “(Dr. Wu) failed to maintain the standard of practice with multiple patients in varying situations,” the committee found in ordering his licence revoked. “He has demonstrated serious clinical deficiencies that put his patients at risk.”
