No, it didn't. But, what does it matter, right? My sister's still dead.
Dr. moved to a different area of practice, and nurse had been thoroughly disbarred/decertified AND banned from ever practicing medically again. Nobody walked out of that court room a winner.

I just want to slap this old guy across the face every time I post something on Twitter, and he specifically tweets something just to one-up me. It's like, c'mon man.

But then, I remember that he *is* an old man, and that informs his worldview and behavioral patterns.

That doesn't mean I can't still rant about him here though.

Yeah, that's the thing that sucks.

My partner's brother died young as well, leaving behind a son and a bit of a legal mess. For him, it was straight-forward cancer, without a dirty knife pointing to someone who should have known better.

And yet, it's the same result. Great guy who isn't around anymore, and I miss him. I guess the only advantage is not having the bitterness of humanity's stupidity involved, so I don't have that extra baggage.

Now everything in the hospital is done on the computer, all reports, order and what not must be entered, logged and NOTHING moves forward until the doctor hits "submit"  When my mother was working the doctor signed the paperwork at the nurses station and spoke with the nurse.  Now the nurse, or any other doctors do not have any information until the doctor takes the time to submit.  Good for accountability, bad for the waiting patient. 

My mother that went to Urgent Care a week ago, has been in the hospital since Friday.  Very long story, but nothing moves... and that nothing moves even slower on a weekend.

fleeb - Is this Melvin's brother that I met at the airport many, many moons ago?

Did you meet his brother, Aahz? I don't recall that.

But, yes, his brother died about three years ago. That is indeed the person of whom I speak.

Not to take anything away from k's sister, though. These sorts of things suck for everyone.

Yes. I grabbed him from the airport and drove him to his house (Was it their grandmother's house??) Lived right by a NY airport on Long Island..

Ohhhh, no, I remember that now, I think.

You drove Girthta's then-husband (now ex-husband) to his grandmother's house on Long Island.

At least, that's who I think that was.

Melvin/Robert's grandmother died long ago, and owned no property in Long Island. Their other grandmother owned property in Shady Side, but she died a while ago, too, and Melvin has ownership of that now.

But I do remember Girthta's now-ex-husband having visited his grandmother there.

He is amazing that way, yes. He's too good a person for me, but I'm thankful he's there.

With the understanding that this question does not in any way diminish my sympathy for your loss...

How does a dropped scalpel have any significant impact on the surgery for a post-rupture appendectomy?  Isn't the entire environment septic to begin with?

Different bacterium...

If the scalpal hadn't been dropped, the nurse wouldn't have wiped it on her gown before handing it to the doctor. Investigation shows it was the wiping-on-the-gown action that caused the scalpal to pick up staph bacteria which ultimately killed my sister.
