Was wondering how your facilities are responding to this lawsuit. You probably all know about it by now, but in a synopsis:
Husband in room for epidural has syncopal events > hits head and resulting brain injury results in his death > wife files suit against hospital (and I believe the anesthesia department, I only know the big picture of this event, if anyone can detail please do so)
Its early and I haven't seen that much response with the exception of dialogue concerning this event.
Any thoughts or changes in your facilities consent procedures (I.E. consent to observe/support)
We have had another thread about this quite recently.
