Book Description

“On September 25, 2003, our daughter, Julie Ayer Rubenzer, walked into the Cosmetic Surgery Center in Sarasota, Florida. She did not walk out. This diary records the outrageous events that occurred from that first phone call to 2011—the ruling on Julie’s death certificate,” says author Donald W. Ayer.

The Who’s Next Club: A Cosmetic Surgery Disaster records the painful aftermath of a surgery gone wrong. This insightful true story was written in the hope of making a difference by reducing the cosmetic surgery death rate and exposing the disparity in justice when the people seeking justice are not rich or famous.

After three months of suffering, Ayer’s daughter was laid to rest on December 29, 2003. On the advice of their attorney, Ayer and his wife began this journal after their daughter entered the hospital; but they put it to rest for two months until February 2004, “when we learned what actually happened in that surgery room.”

In 2005, Florida conducted a licensing hearing in Sarasota. “We attended, heard the sworn testimony, and at that point had a legal record of that surgery.” But the Ayers did not receive justice or closure.

About the Author:

5.0 out of 5 stars Accidental Death or Legalized Homicide? December 4, 2013
This book was written by Julie's father. It tells the heartbreaking truth about Medical Malpractice.
Propofol: A plastic surgeon who did not hire an anesthesiologist, ordered a cocktail of drugs, inc. 1650 mgs. PROPOFOL which caused their daughter to stop breathing and a heart attack. That was not the killer. The nurse and surgical tech sounded the code, “She is not breathing, we need chest compressions now.” Doctor said, “Not yet,” continued the surgery on a dead patient for another 5-6 minutes. (That was the killer) The tech yelled, “We must do chest compressions, her lips are blue, her fingertips blue.” Doctor said ‘Ok.” They got a pulse, but she was in a coma, died three months later.
Accidental Death or Legalized Homicide? Her death was deemed to be an accident both by the Sarasota State’s Attorney and by the Wisconsin Medical Examiner. An obvious involuntary manslaughter case that was dismissed as an accident. Believeable?
