The situation involving a Mercy doctor has gained worldwide attention.
The case of Dr. Amy Dunbar, an OB/GYN for Mercy who took to Facebook to voice her frustration with a patient who was late for appointments, is still gaining international attention almost two weeks after she posted comments about an expecting mother. The story was picked up by the Daily Mail in the United Kingdom and was also the subject of banter for NBC's Today Show Thursday morning. News anchor Natalie Morales suggested that the Facebook rant, which wondered aloud if Dunbar should show up late for delivery after the patient was 3 hours late for induction, was private and not intended for public view. "Who is showing up 3 hours late to give birth," she said. Al Roker said the doctor's comments were tongue-in-cheek, while Jenna Bush-Hager…

Mercy says Dr. Amy Dunbar's reported comments on the social media site about a patient were "inappropriate and not in line with our values."
People love to vent on Facebook, but a Des Peres-based Mercy OB/GYN is under fire following comments she's made about a patient who was late for appointments. "So I have a patient who has either chosen to no-show or be late (sometimes hours) for all of her prenatal visits, ultrasounds, and NSTs. She is now 3 hours late for her induction," Amy Dunbar posted January 28. "May I show up late to her delivery?" she wrote. Dunbar's post suggests that the reason why she hadn't cancelled the appointment was because the mother had a previous stillbirth. People have been posting on Mercy's Moms To Be Facebook page calling for disciplinary action, concerned that enough information had been disclosed in the posts to violate patient privacy. KMOV …

The winning entry came from Albert Pujols' Family Foundation All Star Basketball Game held at Missouri Baptist University.
At the beginning of each month, we change the photo that graces the Creve Coeur Patch Facebook Timeline, and we use photos submitted by readers to our Pics and Clips Gallery. In November, we saw photos from Chaminade Red Devil Soccer as the team made a run all the way to the state finals, and dozens of photos from the Pujols Family Foundation All Star Basketball Game held at Missouri Baptist University. Here's the shot we selected. We encourage you to add photos to the gallery when you're out and about in the community at events, or if you happen to spot breaking news. Your photo could be next month's covermodel!

Jack Dempsey gets the credit for being behind the camera for this one.
If you go to the Creve Coeur Patch Facebook page right now, you'll see a new photo gracing our Timeline for the month of October. It features Parkway North running back Johnathan Little giving an opponent a stiff-arm in the Vikings' homecoming game last month against Kirkwood. Why did we choose this one? In part, we chose it because it came from a Patch user who loaded the photo directly to the site. We encourage people to post photos from games, community events, or even breaking news, and you can do it in our Pics & Clips Gallery. In September, Jack Dempsey gave us photos from the Parkway North-Kirkwood football game, while Xavier Menard from Salon Prive shared photos from Fashion Week in New York City, along with a Chamber of Commerce …
