SACRAMENTO - Rep. Ami Bera, who is up for re-election in November, is asking for an investigation into the death of a Vietnam veteran.
News10 reported on the death of Roland Mayo at the Mather VA Hospital Friday. The hospital said that a "Do Not Resuscitate" (DNR) armband was mistakenly placed on the 65-year-old patient. Mayo died following complications from surgery.
Hospital staff insists that the armband mistake did not lead to Mayo's death. Officials insisted the error did not delay response from the emergency response team. They said doctors quickly checked Mayo's medical records to confirm the designation.
