article imageCedars-Sinia Settles With Quaids For $750,000

By KJ Mullins     Dec 17, 2008 in Health
Dennis Quaid and his wife have settled with Cedars-Sinai Medical Center with a $750,000 deal over the accidental overdose of blood thinner that almost killed their newborn twins last year.
The twins were given 1,000 times over the recommended dose of Heparin at the age of two weeks in November 2007. It took Thomas Boone and Zoe Grace a week to recover. There could be future complications from that time when their blood was as thing as water.
The Quaids also have a case against Heparin makers Baxter Healthcare Corp, a subsidiary of Illinois-based Baxter International Inc. They are accusing the company of failing to put clear labels on Heparin vials and not recalling the vials after other infants died in medical mix-ups. The lawsuit was dismissed in part because the company is in Illinois where the case was filed and the overdose took place in California. The Quaids are thiking about refiling that case.
