Pulmonology And Tracheotomy
I am currently working on a medical malpractice law suit. The patient with tracheostomy died due to negligence on the part of a home care nursing agency. The patient's tracheostomy tube wasn't suctioned, a mucus plug formed. The air passage way was obstructed, and the patient died because of cardiac arrest. We need a pulmonologist expert witness based in south florida who is familiar with this type of case.+4 Other Responses
Fluoroscopy Device Usage
Requesting to speak with independent imaging center or hospital radiology director or equivalent to understand fluoroscopic device usage and utilization within the center. Respondents should be able to answer questions pertaining to their fluoroscopic model and its current usage within their facility. Here are some sample questions we may be discussing:
1) how many fluoroscopy procedures are done at your facility in 2016?
2) of all the fluoroscopy procedures you do, what is the percent usage by the following indications? (cardiovascular, pulmonary, gi etc.)
3) when these procedures are performed for these specialties, where do they occur in the hospital?
If you are comfortable answering these questions and would like to participate in this study, please reach out to me. Compensation is offered for your time and insights.
