Surgeon accused in death of patient to get organs

New York Times, February 27, 2008
Prosecutors have charged California surgeon Hootan C. Roozrokh, MD, with prescribing excessive and improper doses of drugs to a patient in an attempt to hasten the patient's death to retrieve his organs sooner. At the heart of the case is whether Roozrokh was pursuing organs at any cost or misunderstood a lesser-used harvesting technique known as "donation after cardiac death."
