osu’s ophthalmic unit is a place where a lot of medical malpractice goes unreported and where patients with serious problems are left without any hope of seeing a doctor.
The unit has been in the news for years, and now, thanks to a lawsuit filed by a patient, it has finally been exposed.
It has been a long road, but ophthalmia is finally a place that is being held accountable for its own incompetence.
“A lot of things are out of our control and we need to take responsibility for them,” Omer, a member of the ophthalmoscope unit, said in a recent interview.
“We’re not in a position where we’re making the diagnosis and then we can’t get help.”
The lawsuit alleges that Osu’s Ophthalmic Unit (OSP) did not diagnose the patient’s condition and instead took the patient to an optometrist to have her eyes examined.
The patient later had her eyes reattached and Osu had to pay $150,000 in damages to the patient and her family.
The patient’s lawyer, Mark Schulz, said that Omer’s OVS was responsible for not doing the required research to determine if the patient had ocular cancer.
Schulz said that when the patient was told the diagnosis was wrong, Osu made her wait a few weeks and then did nothing to fix the problem.
Omer’s ovis was also not able to diagnose her with any type of cancer, he said.
In 2015, the patient sued Osu for $50 million in medical malcontent.
The lawsuit is still active, and a judge has yet to rule on the case.
But there is another aspect to this lawsuit that OSu’s ophysis have yet to discuss.
According to a former employee, OSU did not do enough to protect the patient from Ophthalmologist who was accused of sexual misconduct.
A former employee told the Daily Beast that Oasis’ ophthalmis did not report the sexual misconduct to the hospital because they didn’t want to jeopardize their relationship with the patient.
One of Oasis ophysias staff told The Daily Beast they did not feel safe working for the ophysicist.
“We had our relationship with Oasis go bad, and we were not getting along, and they had a lot to hide,” said the former employee.
“They never let us know.”
“Our relationships were destroyed, and when I saw her, she was devastated, and she was angry that we never reported the issue,” the employee said.
“She said it would hurt her career and her career would be in jeopardy.”
Another former employee said that while they were not aware of the alleged sexual misconduct, the ophsis did not take action to stop the oasis from treating the patient with ophthalitis.
There is an internal review underway to determine whether Oasis is in violation of the patient protections outlined in the Ophthalmia Code of Ethics.
Oasis has not commented on the matter.
