Anesthesiologists in the headlines: 3 updates

Here are three anesthesiologists who have made headlines in the last two weeks:

1. A woman has filed a lawsuit against Cleveland Clinic's Medina (Ohio) Hospital, a lead anesthesiologist, and a registered nurse after allegedly waking up during surgery. The complaint against Cleveland Clinic and the anesthesiology team alleges negligence and failure to meet the standard of care that hospitals are required to provide their patients.

2. Jayehs Dayal, MD, an anesthesiologist and owner of White flint Surgery Center in Rockville, Md., was one of the first physicians to own a freestanding licensed, accredited, three-room ASC in Rockwell. He joined Becker's to discuss growth opportunities. 

3. Anesthesiologist Caleb Stalls, MD, must pay a fine following the 2019 death of a lung surgery patient at Miami-based Kendall Regional Medical Center, now the HCA Florida Kendall Hospital. Dr. Stalls will pay a $10,000 fine plus $5,853 of Florida Department of Health investigation costs. He must also take three five-hour medical education courses.
