A lawmaker is facing disciplinary action after she attended two legislative meetings via video call while also performing surgery.

Terri L. Hill, 62, is a member of the Maryland House of Delegates representing the state's 12th District and was first elected in 2015. She is also a licensed plastic surgeon and has maintained a practice in Ellicott City, just outside of Baltimore, since 1991.

On Friday, Hill said that she had signed off on a consent order from the Maryland Board of Physicians, agreeing to submit to disciplinary action for her "unprofessional conduct in the practice of medicine," the Associated Press reported. She will be fined $15,000 and reprimanded.

The Maryland Board of Physicians first opened its investigation into the delegate after complaints were made in March, citing coverage from the Baltimore Sun that discussed her attending virtual meetings from an operating room.
