Hundreds sue KY hospital over heart procedures

USA Today / The Courier-Journal, February 19, 2013
Edward Marshall, 67, who lives in London, became the first of nearly 400 people to sue the London hospital and 11 cardiologists, including Patil, claiming they conspired to perform unnecessary, risky and often painful heart procedures to unjustly enrich themselves. The suits, which also name the hospital's parent company, Catholic Health Initiatives, allege that two patients died and that the others will be required to take dangerous blood-thinning medications for life and are at risk of other potentially fatal complications. The hospital and other physicians named as defendants deny the allegations.
