Joan Rivers' Death Was Caused By Doctors Not Following Proper Procedure Before Sedating Her With Huge Dosage Of Propofol!

joan rivers death large dosage improper doctor

Wow, this just makes us mad.

According to a New York State agency, doctors who performed the procedure that ultimately led to the death of Joan Rivers messed up by not following the proper procedure before administering a huge amount of the anesthetic Propofol.

According to the Department of Health and Human Services, there was no record at the Yorkville Endoscopy Center of the staff ever weighing Joan before they administered the Propofol.

Meanwhile a computer at the clinic has it recorded that the late comedienne was administered a huge dose, and a staff member admitted that she made a mistake entering the dosage, and input more than double the amount that should have been given to Joan.

According to the report, Joan's personal doctor, Gwen Korovin, entered the operating room without the required authorization, and then performed a laryngoscopy, despite the fact that Joan only consented to an upper endoscopy procedure.

According to the Department, Gwen also asked the staff to take a selfie, and that the doctors were completely oblivious as Joan's oxygen levels plummeted.

It's so sad that Joan's death could have been avoided. Our hearts continue to go out to her family and friends during this tough time.

    I hope that doctor gets her ass sued! It wasn't even Joan's time to go. This is completely sad and could have been avoided.

    Okay, maybe I'll sound like a conspiracy theory nut, but it seems almost too convenient that they were able to pinpoint the blame…I mean, Melissa Rivers just inherited a TON of money and she was adamant about suing…it's not absolutely far fetched that the right people could get paid off. I dunno, I guess it seems like she and the general mass are looking for something or someone specific to blame for Joan's passing instead of chalking it up to the fact that sometimes life is shitty and unfair.

    Again I know I sound a little crazy, but I can't help that this was my initial thought.

    I knew that CLINIC KILLED JOAN, GOT DAM LIARS CUZ SHE WAS BASICALLY HEALTHY AND THEY ALL LIED INCLUDING JOAN's personal Dr.. HOW THE HELL DO U SLEEP AT NIGHT KNOWING U DID SOMETHING LIKE THIS AND NO ONE CAME FORWARD TO ADMIT ANYTHING. It brought tears to my eyes again cuz one report said SOMEONE ON STAFF ADMITTED SHE GAVE JOAN TWICE THE AMOUNT OF PROPOFOL THAN NORMALLY USED BY ACCIDENT. DIRTY BASTARDS

    Melissa is doing the right thing. Most medmal lawyers work on a contingency for their fee. But, you have to front all the expenses from medical records to all the experts. If you have resources, then you are better able to launch a suit. Hope the DA convenes a grand jury. The CMS report shows incredible misconduct. I don't buy the double clicking the meds story. Prop totaled 300 mg but was several doses. Yet, later changed to 120? If it was double click, 1/2 is 150. Several doses would have to be typed in wrong. Something is wrong with that story and the addendum was listed done at 2:36ish? Something is fishy.
