Hospital Apologizes to Families of Five Patients Who Died

The board and supervisory council of the Scheper Hospital in Emmen have apologized to the families of five patients who did not survive stomach operations. According to the conclusions of the Investigation Council for Safety, not only the surgeon was responsible for the lack of safety of the patients during the operations, but also the hospital was negligent. The surgeon was dismissed in 2009. The prosecution is checking whether he can be prosecuted for criminal negligence.
