BALDI TRIAL: Treatment ‘Reckless’ And ‘Extreme’
The manslaughter trial of a Des Moines doctor continued Wednesday with testimony saying Doctor Daniel Baldi was ‘reckless.’
The prosecution called Dr. Stephen Wagner to the stand who was hired by the prosecution to review the medical records of the nine patients who died.
The Minnesota pain-relief physician testified Baldi was “reckless” and “extreme” in his treatment of patients who showed clear signs of addiction to pain pills.
However, when cross-examined by the defense, Dr. Wagner admitted that most of the patients either had no drugs prescribed by Baldi in their system when they died or had additional drugs not provided by Baldi.
The trial continues Thursday morning.
