    • Summary: Dr. Dennis H Olson; License # 16794

      Nature of Complaint:

      The physician, on February 27, 2007, had performed surgery on a patient, with a history of abdominal aortic aneurysm repairs. The physician’s notes indicate a large amount of bleeding which was controlled after an initial loss of 1200 cc. The patient was reported to have tolerated the procedure well, and left the operating room in good condition. However, several hours later, the patient developed refractory hypotension, and subsequently died. The physician failed to obtain proximal and distal control, prior to removal of the sheath, which resulted in complications in the operating room and subsequent events that led to the patient’s death.

      The Colorado Board of Medical Examiners has issued the physician a Letter of Admonition.
