Conrad Murray Damages Reputation of Medical Care in Acres Homes
So much for the Acres Homes Cardiovascular Institute.
If there's one thing Acres Homes is known for, it's quality medical care, but somehow Doctor Conrad Murray has managed to stain that illustrious reputation.
A California jury found Murray guilty today of involuntary manslaughter in the case of Michael Jackson, who was an entertainer, at least until Murray started treating him.
The jury found Murray had been reckless in his treatment of Jackson, giving him doses of a powerful anesthetic in part because he had trouble sleeping.
If "powerful anesthetic" doesn't sound like something that would help put you to sleep, we don't know what does, but the jury found Murray kinda handed it out like someone giving St. Joseph's aspirin to an 8-year-old.
As is customary in these cases, Murray "showed little emotion" as the verdict was read.
