Doctor accused of murdering 89-year-old man in hospital has medical licence suspended


An eastern Ontario doctor accused of murdering an 89-year-old man in hospital last week has had his medical licence suspended.

Dr. Brian Nadler was charged with first-degree murder by Ontario Provincial Police on Friday.

The College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario say Nadler has now been suspended.

It says it took immediate action to suspend Nadler’s licence after being notified of the allegations against him.

The college says it’s working with police and that it will take whatever steps are necessary to protect the public.

Police identified Nadler’s alleged victim as Albert Poidinger of Point-Claire, Que., on Monday.
