. In Case You’ve Missed It Ohio doctor accused of giving fatal doses of fentanyl to patients found not guilty of murder « JO LEE MAGAZINE

USA TODAY – Dr. William Husel, 46, was accused of prescribing extremely high doses of fentanyl to his patients, resulting in their deaths at Mount Carmel West hospital in Ohio, where he worked from 2013 to 2018. The age of the patients who died ranged from 37 to 82. The case began as a homicide investigation involving 25 victims, but the trial was pared down 14 of the strongest cases, Franklin County Prosecutor Gary Tyack said. All 14 patients died within 30 minutes of Husel administering them fentanyl doses ranging from 500 to 2,000 micrograms. Husel’s defense argued that his dosing practices were for comfort care only and that death for his critically ill patients was imminent.
