It has been revealed in a new report that two hospital doctors and a radiologist have been facing charges for manslaughter. They have been accused of providing deadly radiation overdoses to hundreds of patients of cancer.
Not one, two or five, but some 20% extra doses were received by patients. As per the findings, seven out of a group of 24 patients even had to face death. They were being treated at the Jean Monnet hospital in Epinal located in north-east France in the Vosges.
Besides, another group consisted of some 424 patients of prostate cancer, all of whom were given 8-10% higher doses than that considered as a safe level. It is being said that a calibration error caused the same to happen but, patients had to suffer severe internal burns.
The three people who have been accused in the case are Doctors Jean-François Sztermer, 64, radiologist Joshua Anah, 54 and Michel Aubertel, 62. It has been found that they did not help patients in problem and also tried to destroy the evidence of the same.
It is being suspected that there are three other health officials who might be having hand in the case. “There wasn't just the error, there was the desire to hide it", said Gérard Welzer, some patients’ lawyer.
