A doctor banned “Dr. Death” from operating on his patients
I’ve never quite heard of anything like the stories that are coming out down under: “Miach said that around June or July 2003 he decided to ensure that his patients never received surgery from Patel. He said he told Patel he was banned from operating on his patients. Nurses kept vigils over patients to ensure Patel performed no procedures on them when Miach was absent . . .
. . . In earlier testimony, Miach told the inquiry how a young woman developed gangrene after Patel amputated part of her left leg and then failed to check on her for several days.
‘There was no follow up, the stitches in the stump were left there for six weeks,’ he said in a transcript of the inquiry hearings Wednesday. ‘There were areas of infection, areas of gangrene, areas of necrosis.’”
