HUSEL ANNIVERSARY


THIS WEEK MARKS A YEAR SINCE MOUNT CARMEL HEALTH SYSTEM IN COLUMBUS ANNOUNCED A DOCTOR ORDERED EXCESSIVE PAINKILLERS FOR DOZENS OF PATIENTS WHO THEN DIED. WILLIAM HUSEL PLEADED NOT GUILTY TO MURDER CHARGES IN THE DEATHS OF 25 PATIENTS IN COLUMBUS. HIS LAWYERS CONTEND HE WAS CARING FOR DYING PATIENTS, NOT TRYING TO KILL THEM. AS THE CASE MOVES TOWARD POSSIBLE TRIAL THIS YEAR, RELATED PENDING LAWSUITS REFLECT A BATTLE OVER BLAME. PATIENTS' FAMILIES SUED HUSEL AND THE HOSPITAL. HUSEL AND FORMER COLLEAGUES ALSO SUED MOUNT CARMEL FOR DEFAMATION, ALLEGING IT SPREAD A FALSE NARRATIVE ABOUT WHAT HAPPENED. MOUNT CARMEL IS STANDING BY ITS INVESTIGATION.
