State places psychiatrist Rafael Mora de Jesus on probation related to faulty psych evaluation
June 22, 2012
On November 21, 2011, the Connecticut Department of Public Health placed the license of psychologist Rafael Mora de Jesus on probation for two years with terms and conditions.
De Jesus was found to have prepared a “neuro-psychological evaluation” of a patient in 2009 and released the report to the patient’s parent and school psychologist although the report contained significant errors, failed to incorporate all relevant data and to communicate its findings and provided inadequate recommendations.
Further, de Jesus, performed the same kind of evaluation on another patient in January 2010 but never prepared a report of his findings. Conditions of his probation include having his practice monitored.
