Dr. Betzu implanted a pacemaker, a routine procedure on a healthy female. During the procedure he went too far through the heart wall. Within 24 hours the pericardium filled with blood and caused tamponade. Later the lungs filled with blood. Even though he was on call for the practice, Dr. Betzu did not respond to numerous attempts by the hospital staff to reach him. Since he did not respond, another member of the practice gave orders. This resulted in 25 additional days in the hospital over a one-year illness. The resulting problems lasted for two years on and off medications which impeded her quality of life. Only the grace of God saved her.
