(AP) – Three more wrongful-death lawsuits have been filed against an Ohio hospital system and a doctor accused of ordering potentially fatal doses of pain medication for dozens of patients over several years.

The Columbus-area Mount Carmel Health System and Dr. William Husel (HYOO’-suhl) now face at least 19lawsuits.

Mount Carmel found the now-fired doctor ordered potentially fatal doses for 28 patients. It later said he ordered excessive but not likely fatal doses forsix more.

Lawyers say two lawsuits filed Tuesday involved patients in that latter group – 73-year-old Sherry White in 2014 and 72-year-old Virginia Brokamp in 2017. The third lawsuit involves 57-year-old Michael Walters’ 2017 death.

Husel’s lawyers aren’t commenting on the allegations.

Mount Carmel haspublicly apologizedand placed otheremployees on leavepending further investigation.
