Have you had a knee or shoulder surgery from Dr. Jerry Barron?
Was your anesthesiologist Dr. Paul Shook?
Did you have a CRNA named Amy E Runk during your procedure?
Have you had surgery at Presbyterian hospital that is owned by Novant Health?
Dr. Jerry Barron does not believe in proper patient positioning during the shoulder surgery in the beach chair position. He does not support the arm that is not being operated on properly. This can lead to lack of blood flow to the head of the patient and can cause permanent memory loss and catastrophic hypotention.
Dr. Jerry Barron believes in making sure his patients experience low blood loss during his surgeries. The problem with this is that it can cause hypotention of the patient and a rapid loss of blood flow to the patients head in the beach chair position. This means that a high percentage of his patients are at severe risk of permanent brain damage.
Dr. Paul Shook has been investigated by the North Carolina Board of Medicine for unsafe practices. He does not believe in the Anesthesiology Safety Foundation Best Practices. Dr. Paul Shook believes it is acceptable to have hypotension during shoulder surgery in the beach chair position. That means up to 20% of his patients are in danger of experiencing permanent memory loss, anxiety, extreme weight loss and permanent brain damage. The symptoms from this are similar to a mild traumatic brain injury.
Amy E Runk CRNA does not follow the anesthesiology safety foundation best practices. She does not maintain blood pressures to an acceptable level during surgery in the beach chair position. Amy E Runk has been investigated by the North Carolina Board of Nurses for not providing an adequate level of care for patients.
