Teen on trial for impersonating physician assistant

Http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/1...hysicians-assi


Someone's watched "Catch Me If You Can" a few too many times.

Matthew Scheidt, 18, was sentenced yesterday to a year in jail for impersonating a physician assistant at a Florida hospital, where he dressed wounds, examined disrobed patients and even performed CPR.

Scheidt was arrested in Sept. 2011 at the of 17, after he raised the suspicions of hospital workers by trying to gain access to restricted areas of Osceola Regional Medical Center.

Investigators learned that Scheidt had no qualifications to be a physician assistant, and his position was the result of a paperwork error. When he was hired as an office clerk in August 2011 and went to pick up his badge, he got one stating he was a physician assistant, and the teen just went along with the role.

While Scheidt admitted that he "messed up," he has also maintained the hospital is partially to blame.

"Let's even say that I said I was a physician assistant," he told police last August, according to CNN. "Let's even say that I was. Are you that stupid that you are just going to put me in the system as that, without any credentials or any paperwork or nothing?"

A hospital spokeswoman told Reuters that she knew of no patients who were harmed under Scheidt's care.

After his arrest, Scheidt was bonded out of a juvenile detention center, but was arrested four months later for impersonating a cop, NBC Miami reported. He was caught when he pulled over a real cop -- who was working undercover -- and tried to order the officer to fasten his seatbelt.

Scheidt has not yet been tried for a charge of impersonating an officer. In connection to the hospital charade, though, he was convicted of two felony counts of practicing medicine without a license and two felony counts of impersonating a physician assistant earlier this year.

In addition to his year in jail, he will spend a year under house arrest and eight years on probation.

According to the New York Daily News, Scheidt participated in a volunteer program at another hospital when he was 13, but was kicked out for pretending to be a nurse.
