State of CT - Final Memorandum of Decision, 6-18-1991Melvyn Rapoport is disciplined by the CT Medical Board. Violations include: 1) On May 6, 1989, Rapaport estimated a fetus as 10 to 11 weeks gestation and attempted an abortion. He told the patient the abortion was complete and went well. In actuality, the fetus was 29 weeks gestation, and the woman was still pregnant after the abortion attempt. The botched abortion caused pregnancy complications and the woman had to be induced at 30 weeks. Rapaport failed to be present for the preterm birth, and left a resident to deliver the 3 pound, 6 ounce premature baby. 2) On May 5, 1990, one of Rapaport's ob/gyn patients went into labor, and the fetus showed continuing signs of distress. Rapaport delayed an emergency delivery, despite the fact the fetus had been in distress for several hours. After the fetus had been in distress from 9:30 am to 3:00 pm, a C-section was finally authorized and performed, but the baby was born dead. 3) Rapaport performed hysterectomies on two women with no medical necessity for the procedure, rendering both women unable to bear children. As a result of these violations, the Board placed Rapaport's license on indefinite probation, & ruled Rapoport could not practice obstetrics or perform abortions. See pages 3-14 & 17.
