Based on readily available public information, Sam’s death should have been reported to the state Office of Medical Examiners. This reporting would have triggered an inspection by the state. UC health did their own internal autopsy without notifying Sam's partner. This failure to report was uncovered by Sam's partner when the autopsy report was received months after Sam's death. The fact that Sam's death, which was caused by negligence, malpractice and assault, raises a big red flag. UC Health is the state's teaching hospital, where errors by unsupervised trainees were repeatedly witnessed at Sam's bedside. There is no way Sam’s death is the only one that has been hidden. How many deaths are caused by errors at UC health and unreported?
