MARCY, N.Y. — A psychiatrist who falsified patient records while working at the Central New York Psychiatric Center has pleaded guilty, paid restitution and been forced to leave state employment.
Dr. Morales D. Brown, 59, of Deerfield, who worked for state Office of Mental Health, pleaded guilty to criminal trespass and paid $5,486.86 restitution to the state as part of his plea agreement, according to state Inspector General Catherine Leahy Scott . Brown was also ordered to serve 25 hours of community service.
Between August and September 2016, Brown falsified three medical records known as “psychiatric progress notes” after falsely claiming to have attended to inmate patients at the facility. Additionally, between January and September 2016, Brown submitted false time and attendance records for time that he did not work.
The Inspector General’s Office is referring the case to the New York State Office of Professional Medical Conduct to determine Brown’s fitness as a licensed physician.
