I just heard that the “doctor” pleaded innocent.

I hope he gets what he deserves.

My dad lost his appetite because of the drugs, and mom insisted that he only take the drugs that he was taking before he entered the hospital - blood pressure, etc.

When the drugs were removed, dad got his appetite back.

I don’t think this hospital was trying to harm him, but doctors and hospitals can be very incompetent at times.

We should all put our heads together and write letters to editors warning folks about the kinds of things that go on, as you mentioned in your last post.

NAVARRO update

A most unkind cut...

Hopefully this case will grow more legs.


The San Francisco transplant surgeon charged with three felonies in connection with a failed organ harvest in San Luis Obispo last year was booked at County Jail late Tuesday and released after posting $10,000 bail.

Hootan Roozrokh, 33, is accused of dependent adult abuse, administering a harmful substance (a topical antiseptic) into a human, and prescribing excessive amounts of painkillers and sedatives.


The doctor “looks forward to the opportunity to clear his good name in a court of law and re-establish his reputation as a distinguished and respected surgeon,” according to a statement released by Roozrokh’s lawyer, M. Gerald Schwartzbach, based in Marin County.

The local case is the first of its kind nationally against a transplant surgeon, and experts have cautioned its negative publicity could discourage potential organ donors and transplant surgeons.

Prosecutors allege that on Feb. 3, 2006, Roozrokh, acting as part of the Oakland-based California Transplant Donor Network’s transplant team, attempted to hasten the death of a 25-year-old disabled man, Ruben Navarro.
