Description

In January 2008, a Hepatitis C outbreak was discovered in Las Vegas, Nevada. After investigating the outbreak, officials were able to determine that the infected patients all had one thing in common - they had all undergone procedures at the Endoscopy Center of Southern Nevada.

 

After one of the infected patients passed away, a physician and nurse anesthetist from the Center were charged with second degree murder.

Why didn't someone report this "doctor" sooner? I would happily lose my job in his practice if it meant this animal losing his medical license.

This is mindblowing crazy. Everytime I think it couldn't get any worst. Nope it does. I am a medical coder and I wondering if their coder/biilers got in any trouble for up coding. But I am still listening.
