    West Palm doctor pleads guilty in overdose

    West Palm doctor pleads guilty in overdose

    A West Palm Beach psychiatrist pleaded guilty Friday to manslaughter in the overdose death of a patient to whom he prescribed nearly 20,000 doses of painkillers, anti-anxiety drugs and sleeping pills in a single year.

    George M. Kubski, 55, faces up to 15 years in prison for his role in the death of Jamie Massey, of West Palm Beach.
    Massey, 30, died April 11 from 'combined drug toxicity,' according to an autopsy report.

    During the four months before Massey's death, police said, the doctor prescribed so much medication that her average daily dosage was 66 pills.

    In all, Kubski prescribed 19,866 pills in the year before the woman's death, according to an emergency order that suspended the doctor's Florida medical license in August. He was charged with manslaughter a month later.
