This is an absolutely stunning story. A mother dies during childbirth and an investigation ensues.
But one doctor refuses to go along with the party line, which is to cover everything up.
“They killed my patient. Then they tried to hide it.” (Dr. Amy Teuter @ The Skeptical OB)
That’s an amazing story. It does, though, leave me with several questions. Were there any repercussions for the hospital? Was this one person at the hospital who falsified a report (perhaps to try to protect himself) or was it some sort of scheme by risk managers and others? What did the lawyer do after this doctor told him the report was false weeks before the deposition?

Kudos to the doctor who refused to hide what seemingly a heartless crime.
