2/26/2019: The fired Mount Carmel doctor, who is allegedly responsible for leading the administration of “grossly inappropriate” amounts of pain meds to 35 patients and potentially killing 29 of them, has requested a hearing to appeal the suspension of his medical license.

The State Medical Board temporarily suspended Husel’s medical license on January 25, saying the action was “based on allegations of his failure to meet acceptable standards regarding the selection of drugs, violations of the minimal standards of care and failing to cooperate in a board’s investigation related to the doctor’s prescribing of fentanyl and midazolam to patients under his care at Mt. Carmel Health Systems,” reports WOSU.

The hearing will provide Husel with the opportunity to present evidence and examine witnesses appearing for him and against him, reports WOSU. The date has yet to be determined.

Most of the 35 patients affected by Husel’s actions are believed to have been near death, but the hospital is now saying five of the patients had potential to recover from their conditions.

About a month ago, Husel appeared before the Ohio Medical Board for a half-hour meeting about his conduct. He reportedly pointed to his “Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination” to avoid answering virtually all questions, including inquiries about his understanding of fentanyl and if he administered drugs with the purpose of ending his patients’ lives, reports WOSU.

So far, 19 wrongful death lawsuits have been filed against Husel since his firing on January 19.

The Franklin County Prosecutor’s office is currently investigating the case.

In a move that nicotine-addicted members of Gen-Z are sure to find totally “un-lit,” state lawmakers have raised the legal age for tobacco sales to 21.

The bill, which passed as part of the new state budget, would have included a provision exempting people who turn 18 before October 1 from the new restrictions—but Governor Mike Dewine vetoed that portion of the law.

Products such as cigarettes, rolling papers, vaping products and chewing tobacco are now only available for legal sale to those 21 and up.

Sorry, kids. You’ll just have to wait a few more years to start wasting money on products that damage your health in countless ways!
