Maria Hoshal recalls her mother Carol Ann Doyle's death inside her home in Las Vegas March 12, 2010. Carol Ann Doyle suffered intense pain in the days after her Nov. 6, 2006 laparoscopic gall bladder removal surgery at St. Rose Dominican Hospitals - Siena Campus. Her family says they took her back to the hospital and the office of her surgeon, Dr. Gregg Ripplinger, but were told not to worry and to take more pain medications. After a week of crippling pain she was rushed to the Spring Valley Hospital emergency room where a scan and emergency surgery revealed that a clamp had been misplaced during the initial surgery, which meant bile was leaking into her abdomen, causing her to become infected. She died Nov. 13, 2006.
