Doctor prescribed medicine for himself
A doctor at the hospital in Hässleholm has prescribed narcotics-classed medicine for himself and four other people in his immediate vicinity without making any record of it in his case-notes.

This was discovered by one of the doctor’s colleagues, who reported it to IVO (Care and welfare authority).
Now IVO states that the doctor has neglected his obligation to keep a record of what medicines he prescribes, and criticises him for this. Doctors are obliged by law to keep written records of their patients.
It is, however, not against the law for a doctor to prescribe medicine for himself, but IVO is of the opinion that diagnoses, particularly those requiring narcotics-classed medicines, ought to be handled by another doctor, and not by the doctor himself.
