WMC Suspends Snohomish MD License
OLYMPIA, WA - A Washington Medical Commission panel approved the summary suspension of Dr. Julia Barnett (#60729698) in November.
Dr. Barnett was the facility medical director at the Monroe Washington Correctional Complex. As facility medical director, she administratively supervised and provided oversight for all medical providers at the correctional facility.
The WMC found Dr. Barnett's work fell below the standard of care for six patients, four of whom died. While the patients’ conditions were severe, all of these patients suffered unnecessarily due to Dr. Barnett’s lack of response or inadequate response to staff reports of the patients’ conditions.
Legal documents in this case are available online by visiting the Washington Department of Health Provider Credential Search website.
The WMC promotes patient safety and enhances the integrity of the medical profession through licensing, rule-making, discipline, and education. Learn more about the commission at WMC.wa.gov. Follow the WMC on Facebook and Twitter.
