Interesting that the anesthesiologist had to pay when it seems that the nurses discharged the patient without anesthesia input.
i imagine there were boiler plate anesthesia discharge orders in place. its possible they never got any input in the postop period but the orders are still there. that case also sounds like the disasters that we all fear, with dropped balls at every step of the way. i wonder if she had a congenital vascular malformation, single vert, basilar stenosis, something weird.
