WKYT reports that Ruth Ann Childers, a spokeswoman for Baptist Health Lexington, says the hospital received a report of a physician who showed up for surgery while possibly intoxicated. According to Childers, hospital administration put their procedures in place and the chief medical officer spoke to Dr. Gerstle. Childers says Dr. Gerstle decided to leave the hospital on foot after being confronted and that’s when police were called.

“Patient safety is always our number one concern. This will be thoroughly investigated,” said Childers in a statement.
