$4.5M in settlements over deaths tied to Ohio doc in murder case

COLUMBUS, Ohio An Ohio hospital system has reached nearly $4.5 million in settlements so far over the deaths of patients who allegedly received excessive painkiller doses ordered by a doctor now charged with murder.

At least 29 wrongful-death lawsuits have been filed against the Columbus-area Mount Carmel Health System and now-fired intensive care doctor William Husel, who pleaded not guilty to murder charges in 25 deaths that occurred between 2015 and 2018.

His lawyer has said Husel was providing comfort care to dying patients, not trying to kill them.

Mount Carmel has reached settlements in seven cases to date, plus two that didn't involve lawsuits.

1. 25 deaths?

Not even any of the pill mill docs here in South Florida managed to kill that many.

Exactly what I want.

Please take me to a vet when I'm dying.
