Anesthesiologists are M.D.'s, as are Medical Examiners.

A lot of anesthesiologists are RNs too instead of doctors.  Unless the rules have changed in the last 20 years, because that is what we use in this area.  They are board certified. 

The first RN who put me out in 1968 was just a plain old RN, who had no idea how deep under she was putting her patients.

Broom denied Cert in SCOTUS Orders 05/02/11

An Ohio inmate spared from lethal injection once will face a new execution date.

The Eighth District Court of Appeals has rejected Romell Broom's challenge.

Broom had previously been scheduled to die on September 15, 2009 but prison officials were unable to obtain IV access to his veins. Then-Governor Ted Strickland issued a reprieve and postponed Broom's execution.

Broom then filed a challenge to a new execution date but a lower court and the Eighth District court both rejected Broom's claim that a new execution violated his right against cruel and unusual punishment and right against double jeopardy.  :D :P :D :P

Broom is being executed for the 1984 kidnap, rape, and murder of Tryna Middleton, 14, in East Cleveland.

A new execution date will be set after Broom completes any remaining federal appeals.

Inmate can face execution again after failed attempt, Ohio Supreme Court rules


By  Alan Johnson  The Columbus Dispatch     Wednesday March 16, 2016 10:03 AM
Ohio can try a second time to execute convicted killer Romell Broom, the Ohio Supreme Court ruled today.

In a 4-3 ruling written by Justice Judith Lanzinger, the court said that the state would not violate the U.S. Constitution Eighth Amendment ban on cruel and unusual punishment by executing Broom, a Cleveland man who was convicted and sentenced to death for murdering 14-year-old Tyrna Middleton in 1984.

The court sided with the Cuyahoga County prosecutor who argued that the botched attempt to execute Broom on Sept. 15, 2009, didn't count as a failed execution because deadly chemicals never entered Broom's body.

"To be clear, the state must comply with the protocol as amended," Lanzinger wrote. "Strict compliance with the protocol will ensure that executions are carried out in a constitutional manner and can also prevent or reveal an inmate's attempt to interfere with the execution process. We simply are unable to conclude that Broom has established that the state in carrying out a second attempt is likely to violate its protocol and cause severe pain."

Lanzinger pointed out the state has put to death 21 people since Broom's failed attempt.

In a strongly worded dissenting opinion, Justice Judith French said, "The majority's decision to deny Romell Broom an evidentiary hearing on his Eighth Amendment claim is wrong on the law, wrong on the facts, and inconsistent in its reasoning.

"If the state cannot explain why the Broom execution went wrong, then the state cannot guarantee that the outcome will be different next time."

Justice William O'Neill added in his dissent, "Any fair reading of the record of the first execution attempt shows that Broom was actually tortured the first time. Now we embark on the task of doing it again."

It is the first time in recent Ohio history the state will be allowed a do-over in an execution.

Broom's execution was called off after two hours and 18 unsuccessful attempts to attach intravenous needles.

Court records show, and both sides agreed, that Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction employees failed to follow several of the agency's execution protocols, including doing the last of three required medical checks on Broom's veins, incomplete execution-team training, lack of a backup execution procedure, and involvement by a contract physician who was not part of the execution team.

Broom's case is unique in Ohio's capital-punishment history and is one of only two known cases nationally in which an execution was halted after it began. The other one was Willie Francis, a 17-year-old killer who died in Louisiana's electric chair on May 9, 1947, having survived a botched execution a year earlier.

On the one hand, great! Strap him down and get rid


Due to their lack of current progress and the fact they won't schedule executions any less than 6 weeks apart, Ohio is currently fully booked until the start of 2020 (and that's if they aren't all postponed and shuffled backwards yet again)

I'm sure they could squeeze a few more into their schedule though!!!

Supreme Court Rejects Challenge to Lethal Injection

 The U.S. Supreme Court declined Monday to hear a challenge from a death row inmate who argued that because the state botched its first attempt to execute him, trying again would be unconstitutional.

 The court turned the case down in a brief one-line order. Justices Stephen Breyer and Elena Kagan said they would have granted the appeal to decide the issue.

 Ohio prison team members struggled for well over an hour to prepare 60-year-old Romell Broom for lethal injection. They inserted needles at least 18 times into his arms, wrist, hands, and ankles, but they could not find a vein that would hold. Some of the attempts caused him to scream out in pain.

 His lawyers urged the justices to rule that another attempt would amount to unconstitutional double jeopardy.

 "To force a man to prepare for his death -- not once but twice -- and the second time with the full knowledge of the error of the first, is an elevation of punishment repugnant to our Constitution," they said.

 While double jeopardy is usually thought of as putting a person on trial a second time for the same offense, it also applies to multiple punishments for the same crime.

 Ohio's supreme court rejected Broom's appeal, ruling that he was never actually in jeopardy of execution the first time because the attempts to insert needles in his veins were carried out in a holding cell, not the death chamber, and because the lethal chemicals had not yet begun to flow.

 Not so, Broom's lawyers said. "Broom had no hope of leaving the death house alive." Because he was well beyond the point of expecting that he would be executed "and was made to endure intense pain and suffering, a second attempt is barred by double jeopardy."

 Broom was sentenced to death for raping and murdering a 14-year-old girl when he was 28. After years of appeals, he was moved in 2009 to the Southern Ohio Correctional Facility in Lucasville, where the execution was botched, beginning a new round of appeals.

 Prosecutors have said Broom caused the condition that made it difficult to find a suitable vein, because he took a box full of antihistamines the day before.

 Broom's attorney, Adele Shank expressed disappointment over the Supreme Court's rejection of the challenge.

 "It was a unique opportunity and it's disappointing it was not taken at this point," Shank said. "There are further steps to be taken for Mr. Broom but what they are we cannot comment on."

Ohio death row inmate Romell Broom resists setting new date

CBS News

 COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Attorneys for a convicted Ohio killer who survived an execution attempt in 2009 are opposing a request to set a new execution date.

 Death row inmate Romell Broom was sentenced to die after being found guilty by a jury of abducting, raping and killing 14-year-old Tryna Middleton in Cleveland in 1984. He denies that he did it.

 The state stopped Broom's execution after two hours in September 2009 when executioners failed to find a usable vein despite 18 attempts to insert needles.

 Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Michael O'Malley wants the Ohio Supreme Court to set an execution date, saying Broom has stalled his execution for seven years with appeals.

 Broom's attorneys said in a Wednesday filing that Broom has important appeals pending and that the state shouldn't be in a hurry to set a new date.  :P

Last year, the U.S. Supreme Court turned away Broom's arguments that a second attempt would amount to cruel and unusual punishment and double jeopardy.

Execution Date Set for Romell Broom

 The Ohio Supreme Court set a June 2020 execution date for Romell Broom, whose 2009 execution was halted after prison officials couldn't find suitable veins to carry the lethal injection.

 Broom, convicted in the rape and murder of a Cleveland teen, was reportedly struck at least 18 times over two hours before then-Gov. Ted Strickland granted a reprieve.

 Broom sued to block further execution attempts, but the Ohio Supreme Court paved the way for a new lethal injection date in a split decision more than a year ago.

 There are now more than 30 executions scheduled through 2021, though ongoing legal challenges have led to continued postponements in recent years as the state tries to find lethal injection drug supplies and convince the court that its execution protocols are constitutional.

2nd execution scheduled for Ohio killer who survived '09 execution

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- The Ohio Supreme Court has set a new execution date for a convicted killer who survived a botched execution attempt in 2009.

The court last week scheduled the lethal procedure for death row inmate Romell Broom for June 17, 2020.

Broom was sentenced to die for abducting, raping and killing 14-year-old Tryna Middleton in Cleveland in 1984.

The 62-year-old Broom is only the second U.S. inmate to survive an execution after the process began.

The state stopped Broom's execution after two hours in September 2009, when executioners failed to find a usable vein following 18 attempts to insert needles.

Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Michael O'Malley says Broom has stalled his execution for years with appeals.

Broom's attorneys say Broom has important appeals still pending.
