An oral surgeon lost his medical license for five years after 15 of his patients at his Budd Lake office were sickened and one died of a bacterial heart infection, according to authorities.
Dr. John Vecchione, who operated North Jersey Oral Maxillofacial Reconstructive Surgery LLC on Route 46 in the Budd Lake section of Mount Olive, was ordered to pay $293,000 in penalties and costs after he failed to follow infection control protocols, which caused his patients to be exposed to bacterial endocarditis between 2012 and 2014, according to a statement by the Office of the Attorney General. Of those infected, 12 patients — who ranged in age from 24 to 80 — required heart surgery and a 54-year-old later died due to complications.
Vecchione, who agreed in 2016 to have his license temporarily suspended as the allegations against him were pending, has been fighting his case in court. Shortly before he was expected to take the stand in his own defense in January, he agreed to settle the case under the terms contained in a Final Consent Order.
“Dr. Vecchione spent years denying any responsibility for the infections contracted by patients in his care
,” said Howard Pine, the acting director of the Division of Consumer Affairs.
In a complaint filed against Vecchione in August 2016, it was alleged that he engaged in professional misconduct and gross negligence following a series of inspections of his Budd Lake office. Specifically, investigators found Vecchione failed to use sterile water or sterile saline during surgical procedures; improperly handled and improperly stored single dose medication vials; failed to sterilize medical instruments; used expired vials of medication; and failed to properly dispose of needles and syringes.
This dentist should just retire and quit practice. Clearly, he has either medical/mental cognitive problems.
His manner of practice is way outside the standard of practice of dentistry.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi stood up immediately following President Trump’s State of the Union address and ripped up the pages of his speech on camera as the president began to exit the podium.
The move followed an awkward exchange at the start of the night where Mrs. Pelosi extended her hand for a handshake
, but the president snubbed her.
Both jabs caught the attention of social media users, where the exchanges began trending on Twitter.
Mrs. Pelosi said she ripped the speech because it was the “courteous” thing to do. The White House official Twitter account jumped on the speaker’s move, using it as an opportunity to showcase the guests Mr. Trump had accompany him to the address. “Speaker Pelosi just ripped up: One of our last surviving Tuskegee Airmen. The survival of a child born at 21 weeks.The mourning families of Rocky Jones and Kayla Mueller. A service member’s reunion with his family. That’s her legacy,” the White House tweeted.
When the Dems lose the House majority this November
, they can thank the Speaker.
It is hard work, believe me.

Last week Supreme Court Chief Justice Roberts played politics and REFUSED TO READ SENATOR RAND PAUL’S QUESTION on the Anti-Trump whistleblower during the Senate impeachment trial!

Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts was playing politics and siding with Democrats!!
Senator Rand Paul announced earlier that this afternoon at 1 PM ET he would insist on his question which reveals the name of the whistleblower.
On Friday night (Jan 31), a few days after my new book about deplatforming and cancel culture came out, the news broke that Twitter had permanently suspended Zerohedge for breaking the platform’s policies. The move was taken in response to an article penned by Buzzfeed writer Ryan Broderick which falsely accused Zerohedge of “doxxing” a Chinese coronavirus researcher. We have not amplified the false account by linking to it.
I’ll still post to them, but…..
