On Iyer’s Insights I’m going to be talking with you about patient death from overdoses of medications. Or were they overdoses? An interesting question.
In the previous podcast you heard Sharon Kelly talk about the police perspective on opiates. And today I’m going to share with you a couple of cases that I read about in Medical Malpractice Verdicts Settlements and Experts that were published in the July 2018 edition.
Listen in as Pat Iyer chats about these points
- The case of a 54-year-old self-employed contractor who died in bed and also what the autopsy showed
- What the defense’s pathology and cardiac pharmacology experts testified about
- The second story of a person who died after consumption of medications
- Did he really die of of Citalopram overdose? What else happened?
