Trial continues for suspended dentist linked to patient’s death
Posted on Monday, July 21st, 2014
The trial of a suspended dentist who has been linked to a patient’s death in Connecticut will continue, an article by the Republican American stated on July 21.
Reports said dentist Rashmi Patel denied allegations that he was liable for the death of one of his female patients last February, and he is fighting for the reinstatement of his license. During a procedure to remove his patient’s teeth and install implants, the patient became unresponsive and died. The Connecticut State Dental Commission stated that Patel committed negligence after failing to take action when Gan’s oxygen levels decreased and for extracting all the teeth in one session. The next testimony hearing for the trial that started in June is scheduled to continue on July 23.
