You must mean follow the link within the article cited in the OP. The link to the NYT http://www.nytimes.com/2011/09/06/us/06b...ted=1&_r=1 .
I just read the NYT and did see the hospital was cited for some reasons but the doctor wasn't.
Yes - when I read an article, I also read what the article is referencing and if that article doesn't adequately answer questions, I go to source material as well. I assume, (shame on me), that other liberals, who claim superior intelligence and education, do the same.
The doctor, (Berkley's husband) is part owner of the transplant center and a number of dialysis centers in Nevada, that contribute A LOT to her campaigns.
"Mr. Rowlett’s death and four recent others in the first year after the surgery, as well as 10 transplant failures, were part of a troubling pattern — the death and failure rates were more than twice the expected level. That led the federal Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services to issue an order to revoke the certification for the hospital’s transplant program — which does about 50 transplants a year — and cut off Medicare financing, effectively shutting the program down."
