An ex-U.S. Army doctor had his license revoked because it has been found that he was stuffing his students with hypnotic drugs as they were going through a battlefield-trauma training. He was also found guilty of performing dangerous procedures which includes an intentionally inducing shock.
Dr. John Henry Hagmann provided training during 2012 and 2013 in Great Britain, Virginia, Colorado and North Carolina. Hadmann's students said that he was teaching them how to insert a catheter into each other as well as performing penile nerve blocks. "The evidence is so overwhelming and so bizarre as to almost shock the conscience of a prosecutor who's been doing this for 26 years," Assistant Attorney General Frank Pedrotty told the Virginia Board of Medicine.
Two students showed pictureas to the board showing their scars on chest after procedures went awry. Hagmann was also giving ketamine to his students, and many of them had hallucinations. Hagmann told the media he is convinced that he did nothing wrong.
The military was long aware of Hagmann’s procedures through which he earned more than USD 10 million. Even though students volunteered for the project, experts claim, they were still intoxicated and unable to make sound decisions. "There was a line that was crossed," Colonel Neil Page, who investigated the matter for the Uniformed Service University for the Health Sciences said.
