State disciplines local health care providers

OLYMPIA — The state Department of Health has revoked or suspended the licenses, certifications, or registrations of health care providers in Kitsap County.

- In April, the Medical Commission entered an agreed order with physician Lila Aflatooni (MD00024955), who will surrender her license by Dec. 31, while she is selling her medical practice. If her practice sells prior to that date, she will surrender her license at escrow closing and completion of another transition period agreed to as part of the sale.

She may not treat any pregnant woman or accept new patients who are pregnant. She must transfer her pregnant patients or those who become pregnant to the care of another provider.

She was charged with failing to comply with an earlier order. She failed to treat a pregnant patient who had extremely high blood pressure. The patient saw another doctor the next day and was airlifted to the hospital.
