ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — A Maryland state legislator who is a plastic surgeon has been fined $15,000 and reprimanded for twice participating in legislative committee meetings by videoconference from an operating room during surgery. Del. Terri Hill signed a consent order this month agreeing to the disciplinary actions from a state physicians board. The board noted Hill participated in one committee voting session while appearing in a video feed in surgical gown. Hill said in a statement she has worked hard to fulfill her professional obligations to both her patients and her constituents during the pandemic _ a balance she called challenging at times. She said she accepted the board decision that she could have done better.
