Lawsuits Against Mt. Carmel Reach At Least Twenty Six
At least 26 wrongful-death lawsuits are now pending against Mount Carmel Health system and the now fired doctor accused of ordering fatal doses of painkillers for dozens of patients.
The newest case alleges William Husel ordered excessive fentanyl doses for 37-year-old Brandy McDonald last year. In responses to some earlier lawsuits, Husel's attorney denied he negligently or intentionally caused patients' deaths.
