Expert testimony gathered ahead of Mount Carmel nursing hearings


COLUMBUS (WBNS) -- Expert testimony is being gathered this week that could be used in some of the upcoming disciplinary hearings for Mount Carmel nurses tied to the patient overdose scandal.

While none of the nurses have been charged criminally, they could face disciplinary sanctions from the state board of nursing for their alleged roles in the scandal.

Letters sent to the nurses last year from the Ohio Board of Nursing state that the nurses had a duty to question the prescription orders from Dr. William Husel or should have known that doses could have been potentially harmful.
