There’s Nothing Accidental About Murder

by Leisa on February 7, 2008

When one person kills another through a genuine accident or through no fault of their own it is termed manslaughter.  When one person dies at the hands of another person who is knowingly in charge of a lethal weapon, it is murder. And this is what happened to Heath Ledger, murdered by the medical industry

Doctors Drive Me Crazy!

by Leisa on February 4, 2008

I try very hard not to Dr. bash, (ok, I don’t try THAT hard!), but what they do at times certainly does drive me crazy! This area came up again today when I had a consultation with an elderly patient who was suffering from faintness, dizziness upon standing and some mental confusion. After taking a case
