COLUMBUS, Ohio (24-7 News)--Two more wrongful death lawsuits are being filed against Mount Carmel West Hospital and one of its former doctors.
Court records released Monday now show the total number of suits filed against the hospital stands at eight.
All of the court cases are in connection to former Mount Carmel doctor William Husel, who is accused of improperly prescribing patients with fentanyl and other drugs.
Officials at the hospital have said they are cooperating with law enforcement but are unable to comment on specific cases due to state and federal laws.
Dr. Husel has been fired from mt. Carmel as a result, and his medical license was suspended by the Ohio medical board last week.
