The main entrance to Mount Carmel West Hospital is shown Tuesday, Jan. 15, 2019. An intensive care doctor ordered "significantly excessive and potentially fatal" doses of pain medicine for over two dozen near-death patients in the past few years after families asked that lifesaving measures be stopped, an Ohio hospital system announced after being sued by a family alleging a dose of fentanyl hastened a woman's death. The Columbus-area Mount Carmel Health System said it fired the doctor, reported its findings to authorities and removed multiple employees from patient care pending further investigation, including nurses who administered the medication and pharmacists.
