Doctors were Irresponsible while Treating Joan

Untitled-2The circumstances for the death of Joan Rivers are still not clear. Now, the updates say that her doctors used some inadequate amount of protocol while they were trying to do her upper endoscopy.
According to the sources, Joan was going through the process of endoscopy. Then at the same time her personal doctor Gwen Korovin also performed laryngoscopy even when she was not in a suitable condition to be operated. The endoscopy was done at the Yorkville Endoscopy Center.
The 81-year-old Joan’s oxygen level went very down while she was operated and the doctors were not unaware of this and then suddenly her heart stopped working. After all this, one of the staff member accepted that they have given her more than the double amount of propofol required to anaesthetize Joan.
Joan’s daughter Melissa Rivers said that she will sue the Yorkville facility as well as the doctors involved in the court. Her lawyer told us, “Our client, Melissa Rivers, is terribly disappointed to learn of the multiple failings on the part of medical personnel and the clinic as evidenced by the CMS report. As any of us would be, Ms. Rivers is outraged by the misconduct and mismanagement now shown to have occurred before, during and after the procedure. Moving forward, Ms. Rivers will direct her efforts towards ensuring that what happened to her mother will not occur again with any other patient.”
