Actor Sues Drug Maker

Actor, Dennis Quaid recently suited Baxter Healthcare Corporation in a products liability lawsuit. The complaint alleges negligent packaging of different doses of a production in similar vials with blue backgrounds. The drug, a blood thinner called Heparin, was given to Mr. Quaid’s new born twins and they were inadvertently given massive doses at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center on November 18. The lawsuit was filed in the Illinois courts as Baxter Healthcare is based in Deerfield, IL.

In February of this year, Baxter had issued a letter to all health care workers cautioning them about the possible mix-up. According to Dennis and his wife, Kimberly, this was not enough.
