The Maryland Board of Physicians reprimanded a physician and fined her $15,000 after she attended legislative meetings twice via Zoom while in the operating room, according to documents filed Oct. 16.

Terri Hill, MD, is a board-certified plastic surgeon who also serves as a state delegate representing parts of Howard and Baltimore counties.

In one instance on Feb. 19, Dr. Hill appeared to briefly step away from an operating room to present a bill she was sponsoring. On March 12, multiple gowned and masked individuals were seen moving around Hill's Zoom feed. 

"Had there been any safety or privacy concerns, then I wouldn’t have done it," Dr. Hill told The Baltimore Sun in March.
