    My father was a patient at Excela Health Latrobe, Dr. Klions discharged my father with a likely GI bleed....without ever confirming the source or solving this problem. His hemogloblin was 7.9 on discharge, after having a transfusion. The home health agency did not even receive an order to check his blood count with their home visits. After three days at home my father was taken by ambulance to another hospital (we will never go back to Excela again). His lips were gray, he could not stand up because he was so dizzy and lightheaded. His heart rate was 96, and his blood pressure was bottoming out. In the ER his hemoglobin was 6.1. The home physical therapist noted his condition and called the ambulance...which likely saved his life. Excela and their physicians have nearly killed my father now twice this year. Prior to them laying their hands on him in January he was an active otherwise well man.
