California: Abortion doc with dead patient monitored by abortion doc with dead patient, huh?

2/2/2010

The OC Register writes:

The California Medical Board allowed an Anaheim ob-gyn who regained his license after the death of two newborns to be monitored by a doctor who had himself been disciplined for a patient’s death.

Board rules require that doctors serve as monitors only if they have no record of disciplinary action. In this case, the board let Dr. Christopher C. Dotson of Los Angeles help oversee Dr. Andrew Rutland’s five years of probation.

Rutland has again been accused of negligence after the death last year of Ying Chen, an abortion patient, 30, who suffered a toxic reaction to anesthesia on his operating table. Since her death, Rutland has been temporarily barred from surgery; he faces another disciplinary hearing next month.

As for abortionist Christopher C. Dotson…according to the website for the abortion clinic: Eve Surgical Center

Eve’s abortionist: “Christopher C. Dotson, Jr., M.D., is a pioneer in reproductive health care. He is certified by the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology, a member of the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology, the American College of Surgeons and the Los Angeles Obstetrical and Gynecological Society. He has taught residents at Cedars Sinai Medical Center and at the local medical schools for over thirty years.”

And get this ladies and gentlemen….”Presently his energies are devoted to overseeing the program at Eve Surgical Center and serving as a member of the Board of Directors of the National Abortion Federation.” ( NOTE: Wait a second – doesn’t NAF brag that they “oversee” the safety standards of abortion clinics nationwide? )

According to the OC Register: Dotson, 78, completed five years of probation in 2005, part of his settlement of negligence allegations stemming from a mother who bled to death after a Caesarean section and a separate case of a stillborn baby. (NOTE – Well… no wonder he has such a high NAF Rating- a woman died )

The Register obtained Dotson’s disciplinary records last week and asked the medical board on Jan. 27 why a previously disciplined doctor was allowed to serve as monitor. On Tuesday board spokeswoman Candis Cohen responded, saying probation staff had erred and Dotson has now been removed as Rutland’s practice monitor.

More of Eve’s Docs – you may want to be aware of: Josepha Seletz, M.D. is Board Certified by the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology and is a fellow of the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology. She is a member of the National Abortion Federation, the Los Angeles County Women’s Medical Association, and the Los Angeles Obstetrical and Gynecological Society.” ( NOTE: Wow…2 NAF members working at the same place for the price of 1…the women in the care of Rutland and Dotson must have been in very safe hands – NOT !)

Dr. Seletz has been on staff at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology for more than 15 years. Before limiting her practice to abortion services, she had a full OB/Gyn practice including gynecological surgery and high-risk obstetrics.”
(NOTE: Can’t wait to read what pops up on her next)>

Gee…Dotson sounds like a top-notch doc. If you are marketing abortions to unsuspecting women, then I guess that trick works..but a little research shows that on October 25,2000 The LA Times wrote this about Dotson: Dr. Christopher C. Dotson Jr., Los Angeles: Committed acts of unprofessional conduct during the care and treatment of two obstetrical patients. Revocation of license stayed, five years’ probation. Effective June 16. But perhaps among abortionists, this National Abortion Federation Board Member is one of the “best”. ( Just Say’n!)

According to: Reporting on Health writer William Heisel:

“Dotson was among the rarest of the rare, a doctor who had been reported to the medical board by his hospital. Hollywood Presbyterian Hospital in Los Angeles said Dotson had been negligent in the treatment of multiple patients. He lost his privileges to practice there.

One of Dotson’s patients died following an abortion in February 1992. The board said that Dotson failed to adequately examine her and should have classified her case as high risk. Because he did not, the board said, the patient ended up bleeding severely from her uterus. Dotson was not prepared to respond. He did not have the right equipment, and he was not able to give her a blood transfusion quickly enough.

This may sound familiar. Rutland also is accused of negligence during an abortion and of failing to adequately examine the patient, Ying Chen. “Key information is missing from the patient’s history such as height, weight and last menstrual period,” the board wrote. “There is no record of the ultrasound examination.”

The board said Rutland “failed to respond in a timely manner in performing appropriate resuscitative measures and obtaining the assistance of emergency personnel.” He also failed to give her an oxygen mask and failed to call 911 quickly enough. Rutland has maintained throughout the medical board and criminal cases that he did nothing wrong in the treatment of Chen.

Might the similarities between their cases have made Dotson sympathetic to Rutland’s plight?

The similarities don’t stop there. Like Rutland, Dotson also has been sued multiple times by patients claiming injury or wrongful death.

In 2005, the week before Dotson’s probation was set to expire, a 34-year-old attorney named Oriane Shevin visited Dotson’s clinic, Eve Surgical Center in Los Angeles, according to records filed in Los Angeles County Superior Court. She was given RU-486, the two-stage abortion drug, and sent home. Shevin took the first part, mifepristone, orally on June 9, 2005, and inserted the misoprostol into her vagina on June 10. She developed a widespread infection and severe bleeding, dying on June 14 at Encino-Tarzana Regional Medical Center, court records show. ( SAY AGAIN? NOT the Same Abortion Clinic which had two National Abortion Federation Members and One Board Member on staff- couldn’t happen there – could it?)

Dotson was sued on behalf of Shevin’s two young children, and he, along with another doctor and the surgical center, settled the case on July 12, 2007.

Two months later, Rutland was given his license back, with restrictions, and Dotson, fresh out of probation, was given the job of overseeing Rutland’s practice.”

Back to the OC Register Story, “The board has accused Rutland of not knowing the appropriate dose of anesthesia and failing to properly attempt to resuscitate Chen, who died in August. Rutland denies he was negligent.

Dotson wrote a letter to the medical board’s enforcement unit Oct. 9, vouching for Rutland’s record keeping and saying Chen died “in spite of appropriate resuscitation efforts.”

“In my opinion, Dr. Rutland is taking his probation very seriously and doing everything he can to more than meet the requisite requirements,” Dotson wrote. ( NOTE: Now there is that typical National Abortion Federation attitude: The abortion patient death is just a “complication” and not to be taken seriously…after all…it is only an “isolated” death unlike the murder of a few abortionist, who are typically male, and make money for NAF)

( More on that great NAF Board Member) The OC Register continues the report: In 1992, a pregnant woman was admitted to Centinela Hospital in Inglewood with bleeding. Dotson performed a C-section, but she continued to lose blood. Lawyers for the board said Dotson failed to identify her as high-risk based on her medical history or give her enough transfused blood. Additionally, he closed her abdomen and sent her to recovery instead of monitoring her and calling for a hematologist.

After her condition worsened she was taken back to the operating room for a hysterectomy. She suffered a heart attack and died of hemorrhaging.

Abortionist Rutland has been instructed to submit the name of a new monitor for board approval. ( Hmmm…I wonder who he will select? Another NAF member ?)
