Anesthesiologist Raynaldo Rivera Ortiz Jr will now be tagged as Dr. Death for his remaining days.
According to reports, Ortiz allegedly injected poison into IV bags.
He allegedly caused the death of a fellow doctor and cardiac emergencies in 11 patients.
Ortiz’s motive was revenge for a medical misconduct probe.
He medical license was pulled after a string of life-threatening complications during routine surgeries where he was serving as the anesthesiologist.
The board stated, "Respondent’s continued practice of medicine poses a continuing threat to public welfare.”
There is video footage of Ortiz doctoring IV bags at Baylor Scott & White Surgicare in North Dallas.
He places a bag used for saline solution in the fridge, clearly looking as though he had bad intent.
That bag was later retrieved by a nurse and the patient that received it suffered complications during her surgery.
This scene plays out again and again on surveillance video.
The worst outcome was when a fellow doctor took an IV bag home to rehydrate.
When Melanie Kasper, 55, used the bag, she suffered a fatal heart attack, with the autopsy showing she had been bupivacaine — a nerve-blocking numbing agent that is used for surgery and not administered intravenously.
Her husband, John Kaspar, stated, "It’s terrible. My wife was a great person and a great doctor. I could say a million things about how wonderful she was."
In response to the investigation, Baylor Scott & White stated, "We have actively assisted authorities and will continue to do so; as such, we will also continue to limit our comments.”
