So much for promises of transparency. In response to my open records request for information about the ketamine studies conducted by emergency medicine physicians at Hennepin County Medical Center, I have gotten this response:
The data you have requested relates to, and has been collected and retained in connection with, ongoing internal and independent outside reviews. It has or may also become the subject of administrative reviews by the EMSRB or other agencies. Therefore, Hennepin Healthcare has classified the data as nonpublic under Minnesota Statutes Sections 13.39 and 13.392 until the conclusion of these reviews.
