Nope, the article is about a self admitted mistake by the doctor, according to the lawsuit. When the mistake was admitted, then it's easy to see it wasn't a piece of hospital equipment or the hospital. So maybe bill, you can use google to check out what FACTS mean. Because you have none. Just gossip and rumor.
I would guess to say you would not care about the Hospital policy, for such cuts, and what the procedures are that require, the cut to be repaired or to let bleed and heal on their own? If the Doctor was or was not following Hospital policy? How much does it cost the hospital to open up a patient, and fix a cut? Your refusal to ask questions, is not normal only because, this Doctor is the spouse of a supervisor from Gloucester. My point is that this type of CUT happens all the time, and any Hospital should be able to handle it, or not perform that type of operation in the first place. If not only the satellite Hospital in Gloucester could not save the patient but the Regional Hospital as well, a policy review on the handling of this type of surgical cut, the procedures were at fault. Too blow this off as a law suit against a spouse of a supervisor, could be a determent to the over all care, WE all could expect to receive. I would never expect you of all people, because of your limited ability of a response, to any question on here to comprehend any different. There is more to talk about in Gloucester, than some guy named Bill, or the supervisors that beat your candidate two years ago...

You can try and hide behind any name you want bill, but your stance remains same. AND YOU keep making this about the relationship of this doctor to the BOS. I only brought it up to show your reason for blaming something else rather than the doctor. To show your blinding support for everything connected to her. But my whole point is you keep bringing up facts you have NO KNOWLEDGE. YOU WEREN'T THERE!!!! So anything you say is mere speculation and THAT is what I am against. YOu constantly rail against gossip and lies yet here your do both, more than anyone. YOU DON'T ANY FACTS TO SUPPORT YOUR STANCE!!!! When you have some facts, then maybe you'll have some credibility, but until you have one, YOU HAVE NONE!!!

And this lawsuit has NOTHING to do with the doctor's spouse's political ambitions. You're making that leap, AGAIN, using it as a smoke screen for what the real problem is. READ THE LAWSUIT. It states about the cuts... "admitted the same to (the patient) and her family, though did not record those perforations properly in the patient chart."

Yet you take the leap that it was poor surgical equipment, improper hospital policy, the hospital protecting itself, without even suggesting maybe the doctor made a mistake. The funny thing here is I don't believe this once incident is cause for the doctor to be reprimanded. He should be investigate to see if there have been other patients which have had similar problems. And if found to be true, then take action.

I know you would never be able to understand that there are always two or more points of view, You seem to find the limited information YOU have as the only facts needed. This article was not about a person's death at the hands of a Doctor, it was about the husband of a supervisor, and his troubles. IF this article was about the death of a patient at a local Hospital, it would state it in that manner. Just because the lawyer decided to pursue the direction given, does not mean that it's the correct direction. Your closed minded vision would never be able to understand that MY concern is not the slander of the said Doctor, but the lack of care, checks and balances, provided by the Hospital, only because of the Doctor's name. I know you are simple enough, but smart enough to know, that the service is provided by the Hospitals, is in question here, just as much as the Doctor's. For the Lawyer and the reporter to project blame, in this manner would only place the Hospital against the Doctor. Yet he works under the Hospital, and uses what is provided by the Hospital, along with following the rules and procedures of the Hospital.

I understand other points of view as long as those other points are based on facts. Again bill, you have presented NONE!!! You make the leap that this is larger than the doctor making a mistake. I wasn't there so I can't be sure of what happened, therefore, I can only form an opinion based on the FACTS written in the lawsuit and posted in the article. And those FACTS present an admission by the doctor in question of making a mistake and not putting it in the patient's chart. I'm sure it is required by ALL hospitals including Riverside that the doctor record ALL pertinent information on the patient's chart. These are the only facts you and I are aware, yet you make the leap that there was an instrument malfunction, or hospital procedures are in place to protect itself without regard to the doctor. If anyone has a closed mind it is you. I keep asking you for FACTS to back up your statements, yet you present NONE!!! NADA!!! NOTHING!!! Give me something to see your side before you leap that I have a closed mind. I'm actually quite open minded about most issues, when presented with factual information and will change my opinion, however, double talk doesn't work with me.

Here are the facts as we know them (based on the information contained in the lawsuit). A woman died after surgery and her family has filed a lawsuit against the doctor who performed the surgery. In that lawsuit, there was information that the doctor admitted to making some cuts which he wasn't suppose to make (not being a doctor I can't determine if the doctor made a mistake) and he did not record that information on the patient's chart. That's all we know.

Lastly, the reason Supervisor Ressler's name was mentioned is her relationship to the doctor in question. It is her fault for having her name in the news repeatedly. It's the perils of being in public office.

yes and you fail to see while reading, for some reason the suit was not settled out of Court BEFORE, being posted in a Court docket, YOU would not wonder about that, YOU read guilt, I read for that simple FACT, innocent.. In coming up with questions of how could he be innocent,, what would be your answer, as HOW that could be? See above and that's my thought on the subject..

Talk about the failure to read, you failed to notice that I said I have no knowledge of whether or not the doctor was at fault, I was just posting FACTS from the suit. I noticed that as of the posting, the suit was not settled, but that doesn't say guilt or innocence. It means they party filing the suit wants to have a judge hear the case.
And once again, you talk in circles bill, rather then post a single fact. Go look up FACT in google, since you're good at that and then post something that isn't a bunch of blah, blah, blah.

Hey, this is not fair. You guys are talking about me and did not clue me in. If ya want me to participate, go get me from the 'other' forum. This is so cute that you think whoever it is in this forum is me..........I love it!

Either way, not a topic that interests me, or one I am well versed on. I do know that 'Think about it' doesn't think. That about sums things up!

It's easy to sum things up when you have the FACTS. And I ALWAYS use the same name. It's easier that way. I don't have to hide behind multiple names trying to convince others of my lame stances.

Gee, bill, what does this have to do with the filing of a lawsuit agianst a certain County Surgeon? You really don't follow these boards very well, now do you? This blog is about a malpractice lawsuit and has nothing to do with sanctions against citizens who file lawsuits. Once again, you show your true self in using yet one more different user name (only in Gloucester) to post gossip and rumors in a lame attempt to defend a doctor who's spouse is a member of the BOS.

I really believe the pressure is getting to you with all your troubles....legal troubles, ill will to your good neighbors, your rants about wind power and making money (and before you go off on selling power to Dominion Power, please do a cost benefit analysis to see how long it will take you to recoup your intial investment), etc. etc. etc....

You really need to seek mental help because I truely think you're losing it.

Yeah, yeah, yeah bill, I've heard you rants way too often. You can't stay on topic when you're wrong which is why you've switched topics. But I do agree with you on one thing, you're certainly lazy. Why? Because this isn't the only active forum out there. Just tell the truth, you lost track of all your multiple names and forgot about it.

As for the dumb asses in Gloucester, just count yourself in that category. You can't stay on topic when you lose an arguement so you switch subjects just as quickly as you switch user names.

Lastly, I can tell I hit a nerve with your anger at being told you need to seek mental help. You lose originality with your posts, you try and convince yourself that I'm wrong because no one else believes it, and lastly, you probably are beginning to realize just how right I am. Good, maybe you will now seek that mental help and let you see just how delusional you've been.
