Hospital pays Dennis Quaid $750,000 for Medical Malpractice

Dennis Quaid, the Hollywood actor, agreed to a $750,000 medical malpractice settlement with a hospital after their twins were given a lethal dose of Heparin. The hospital gave the babies a 10,000-milliliter unit dose of Heparin, a blood thinner, made by the Baxter Healthcare Corp. instead of the prescribed 10 milliliters. The twins struggled for their lives after the lethal overdose of Heparin. Fortunately, the twins survived the lethal overdose administered by the healthcare providers at the hospital. A petition filed in the court shows that the Quaids and the hospital have agreed on the parents’ damages, but can still pursue medical malpractice claims for their children.
