WACO (August 29, 2013)--The Texas Medical Board has asked McLennan County officials to hand over incident reports and medical documents after a complaint was filed on behalf of a McLennan County Jail inmate who claims he didn’t receive proper medical care.
County officials were notified of the complaint in a letter from the Texas Medical Board Aug. 21.
Mike Dixon, the county’s legal adviser, confirmed that the complaint involves a member of the jail's medical staff and medical services to an inmate.
The individual named in the complaint is still working at the jail, Dixon said.
Dixon said the requested documents will be sent to the board within the next 10 days.
"This is standard protocol for the Texas Medical Board to notify us of the complaint and request the required information," Dixon said.
"This doesn't indicate any findings of the problem whatsoever. So far there's nothing to indicate any concern and we plan to cooperate fully,” he said.
Dixon said a separate complaint stemming from the same incident was filed with the Texas Commission on Jail Standards and was dismissed.
