I do hope that you still plan on given further detail on your opinions of this case. I am shocked at the decision. The more I search, the more bad press I find about DaVita as a corporation. Please read: http://www.farces.com/index.php/hasten/comments/davita_under_fire_for_epogen_overuse

I really thought that *SOMETHING* occurred in Lufkin, Texas but I tought we would find DaVita as a whole guilty - NOT just one employee.

Dear R, since the penalty phase of the trial is coming up and most likely a lengthy appeal, I may not after all be able to speak openly as I had hoped. I truly thought that there was reasonable doubt but the jury has spoken and we all have to abide by their judgement whether we agree or disagree. I still respect our system.

I, too, am greatly shocked at the jury's decision. Many of us believe, and still do, that this nurse is innocent and was a scapegoat for Davita.

Davita certainly should be held accountable considering all that came out in the trial.

It is sad to think that someone innocent might be put to death -- very sad --
in the least, maybe this will send a message, to all those who work incenter, that policies and procedures MUST be followed ---that this too could happen to you, a dialysis staff

DaVita is a very shady company. I am glad I left when I did. The care that the patients received is substandard.

Indeed there are some units that provide substandard care ---
