Have you seen Dr. Shashi Bhatt?
April 14th, 2014
He did not get permission to give my husband a scalene block for a rotator cuff surgery. No explanation regarding the block and its possible complications. This block collapsed one of my husband's lungs so he could not breathe properly, as he complained of, and continued to complain even after the surgery was completed. He was discharged home, still complaining of not being able to breathe. I requested to speak to his surgeon, was told that he was gone and Dr. Bhatt called and said that he (the patient) will be FINE just send him home. Four days later he was dead. I believe this patient would not have died if he had not been given that nerve block. If only he had been given the proper information he would have refused. Instead Dr. Bhatt came into the pre-op area and said that he was giving him this block. And that was that. He gets a rating of "0"
