COLUMBUS, Ohio (WBNS) – A grand jury has indicted Dr. William Husel on charges stemming from the deaths of 25 patients in an overdose scandal that has rocked the Mount Carmel Health System and the families of nearly three dozen patients.

Snip--To date, 35 patients have been identified as having receives excessive doses of pain medication – 29 of the patients, the hospital says, received potentially lethal doses of pain medications.

Snip--In interviews with 10 Investigates, several family members acknowledged that their loved ones were in bad shape – and may have died anyway – but claim they were not consulted about the large doses of pain medications that were about to be administered to their loved ones. Many of them died after receiving doses of fentanyl while others were given fentanyl along with other drugs like dilaudid, versed and paralytics like vecuronium.
