Suicide triggers lawsuit against Veterans Administration

Sister’s suicide triggers lawsuit against VA

a few excerpts:
On Veterans Day 2010, former Navy corpsman Kelli Marie Grese, 37, swallowed an unknown quantity of the antipsychotic Seroquel — her fourth suicide attempt in eight months using the same drug.
That time, she succeeded. She never regained consciousness.
Her death is the subject of a $5 million lawsuit filed against the Veterans Affairs Department in the U.S. District Court in Newport News, Va., alleging VA physicians failed to monitor her medications and prescribed them excessively.
Her twin sister, Darla Grese, also a former Navy corpsman, filed the suit, saying physicians at Hampton VA Medical Center, Va., ignored her pleas to quit doling out prescriptions to her sister, a known addict deemed at “moderate risk for suicide.”
“I’m hoping better attention will be placed on how many pills are being written and quantities,” said Darla Grese.
Darla Grese said she filed the lawsuit because she would like to see VA doctors communicate better and pay closer attention to their own patients’ records.

“I don’t understand how a physician can write a prescription for 450 pills and two months later write another prescription for 450,” she said. “Something’s broken. The system is broken.”
