  1. A resident was placing a Trach in my mother’s neck, and she was set on fire.
    Unfortunately nobody in the OR was traineed in surgical fire prevention or supression. I created a website http://www.surgicalFire.Org in the hopes residences, doctors, nurses, and hospital facilities can learn from our personal story, and other stories on my site. This was a tragedy for everyone involved not only my family.
