Earlier this week, 10TV reporter Bennett Haeberle and the 10 Investigates Team published "Deadly Dosage: The Doctor Husel Chronicles," which provides a fantastic overview of what we know about the Mount Carmel cases thus far. The videos feature LV attorneys Gerry Leeseberg and Craig Tuttle, as well as several of our clients.
Mount Carmel recently released an "investigation timeline" purportedly detailing what they have learned about Dr. William Husel's role in prescribing excessive and potentially fatal doses of Fentanyl.
We recently obtained a copy of Mount Carmel's "Plan of Correction," which details, among other things, the following information:
The attorneys at Leeseberg & Valentine filed two more lawsuits against Mount Carmel, Dr. William Husel, a pharmacist, and two nurses earlier today. The cases were filed on behalf of the families of James Allen and Joanne Bellisari, both of whom were given 1,000 micrograms of Fentanyl.
Yesterday, Mount Carmel announced it has identified seven more patients who recevied potentially lethal doses of fentanyl at the hands of Dr. William Husel. It announced one of these new victims likely recevied a fatal doasge. The other six, however, received amounts that went "beyond providing comfort," but likely did not cause the patients' deaths.
The attorneys at Leeseberg & Valentine just filed its second lawsuit against Mount Carmel, Dr. William Husel, and other medical staff on behalf of the family of Troy Allison. On July 15, 2018, Troy Allison went to the Mount Carmel ER for shortness of breath and an infection in his leg. He was admitted to the ICU and within 3 hours was declared brain-dead. At the urging of Dr. Husel and other medical staff, the family agreed to withdraw care. At this time, Dr. Husel ordered that Troy be given 1,000 micrograms of fentanyl, a lethal dosage, without the knowledge or consent of the family. He was pronounced dead within minutes of receiving the deadly dose of dentanyl. He was 44 years old at the time of his death.
