    Jesus! Someone messed up!

    Doesn't even say what kind of doctor administered the lethal dose or if it was a nerve block and what kind.

    This is very rare ( I do anesthesia for a living) and I'm just heartbroken.

    My suspicion is the clinic doctor did a block that went systemic and an anesthesia provider was not even present although I could be wrong.

    Agree with you 100%. I know exactly where you are coming from...... being a scrub tech for the last 16 years.
