Episode 1: The Patients – The New York Times

Date:

Share post:



Dozens of women came to a clinic at Yale for fertility treatment. All of them experienced unexpected and severe pain during a procedure called the egg retrieval. They said that their pain was not taken seriously by their health care providers, or that they were not believed. As a consequence, they came up with their own explanations for their pain. Often they blamed themselves.

In the months that followed, it was discovered that a nurse at the clinic had been stealing fentanyl used in patient procedures and replacing it with saline. Now the patients who were in pain had an explanation for it — and lots of questions for the institution that let this happen.

Carla Pallone is a composer based in France. After classical training as a violinist, she performed in the bands Mansfield.TYA and VACΛRME. She now composes music for cinema and the theater, and has written music for films including “La Fille au Bracelet,” “Libre Garance!” and “Midnight Skin.”
