ATLANTA GA (IFS) -- Piedmont Henry County Hospital, at 1133 Eagles Landing Parkway, Stockbridge, GA 30281, Number, 678.604.1000, is today trying to explain how Dr. Theordore Alexander Smith a famous Cellular Phone towers engineer ended up dead after walking into their hospital. Piedmont Healthcare with over 8 hospitals and over 100 locations in Georgia oversees this facility.
Piedmont Henry Hospital is rated high performing in six (6) adult procedures and conditions. It is a general medical and surgical facility. It scored very high in patient safety and demonstrating a commitment to reducing accidents and medical mistakes.
As comments to their service range from "the greatest" to the "worse hospital ever!" The doctors
"Just plan negligence and medical errors," according to Doctor Merlin Dillard, who was at the hospital on a daily basis during Smith's admittance and after his death, and pleaded to the family to move Smith to another facility, and that staying there would cost him his life -- and it did. The hospital was unable to stop Smith from "Bleeding Out" after a"routine liver biopsy that caused Smith to death at their hands.
All communications with Henry Hospital has been terminated after they released their statement, stating that the family could "sue them" for more information and reparation, with the attitude of "oh well, -- Next!"
The question is how do you let a facility that practice sub-standard medicine and do not follow standard medical procedures deviate from those "given" practice causing the death of their patients which was a simple procedure.
The arrogance of the hospital and it's inability to adapt is more than enough to understand that their medical procedures are antiqued and deadly.
If Henry County Hospital is the best that Henry County can do, then maybe it needs to be torn down at the head of the hospital and rebuilt using modern techniques and practices.
After the death of Doctor Theodore Alexander Smith, the family discovered that this hospital is rated as one of the "worst hospitals in the country" and their reputation does, however, proceed them.
The hospitals only explanation was that "medical errors were made" and that if the family wanted more information and reparation was -- to take them to court and Sue them.
Their statement and direct submission to their errors do say a lot at this time. However, this is the first time in the history of any hospital to admit their them did "fumble with Dr. Smith's life and admitted that they attending doctors did make critical errors. With Doctor Merlin Dillard at the bedside of Smith, and explaining to the attending physicians that their procedures were not correct and that they were placing Smith in danger.
It is with a greater understanding that Smith and Dillard that just received their licenses from the State of Georgia to set up the suburbs first Opioid Clinic(s). This writer is only reporting the facts of the situation and only sees Smith death and the granting of an Opioid Clinic at the same time would play into Smith losing his life at the hospital.
The State of California's Attorney General has some interest in this case and is looking into its findings.
Smith and Dillard co-founded an invention back in the early days of cellular towers, when then placed the first of their designs into the history books when they combined several elements into a small box that transmitted and converted digital, microwave and fiber optical into a small T1 that would be placed anywhere that did not rely on "line-of-site" transmission. The design was so successful, that it was known in the cell phone industry at that time as the "Merlin Solution" that caused an explosion of cell towers around the world.
It's a pity that a standard operating procedure that could have saved Doctor Smith life was totally ignored and abandoned by the hospital staff.
The Smith Family of Woodland California is not abandoning the idea of a civil lawsuit against Henry Hospital and County for Medical Negligence and wrongful death due to malpractice.
As stated earlier in this piece, that Henry Hospital has admitted to "medical errors and not following standard procedures for this type of examination
" and that the family has the right to sue them for relief.
The Smith Family has made an inquiry to the United States Senator Kamala Harris of California, to help look into this untimely death.
It appears at this time that a long fight for justice for Theodore Alexander Smith is about to proceed and that the family is prepared to go the distance.
