Another Mt. Carmel West Patient Who Died Has Been Identified

Attorneys representing families of Mount Carmel West patients who died after receiving excessive doses of fentanyl have identified the youngest patient to date. 

37-year old James Timmons died in late October. The autopsy showed Timmons had a mix of cocaine and fentanyl in his system. 27 patients have been identified by the hospital as being given doses by now former hospital physician William Husel.  Twenty caregivers have been removed from patient care while the hospital investigates. Three wrongful death lawsuits have been filed. 

Jim has been with WCBE since 1996. Before that he worked as a reporter at another Columbus radio station, and for three newspapers in Southwest Florida.
