Parkland knee surgery done by doctor in training leads to amputation
Parkland Memorial Hospital, by its own calculation, seriously harms two patients a day. Jessie Mae Ned was one of them.
She entered Parkland's operating room in 2008 with private insurance and no major health problems except arthritis in her knee. She left a destitute amputee after 24 surgeries in 16 months and $1 million in billings to Medicaid.
