Re: Poor Denis Quaid
You would think rich and famous protect you from this kind of shit, well, it does not, and although Cedar's Sinai is THE clinic, read what follows, it's MONSTRUOUS :
This is every parent's nightmare!
Actor Dennis Quaid and his wife, Kimberly Buffington, welcomed fraternal twins (via surrogate) on November 8th.
Unfortunately, those twins - Thomas Boone and Zoe Grace - are now fighting for their lives after an accidental overdose was given at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles on Sunday.
The newborns were given massive doses of Heparin, a blood thinner. Babies typically get 10 units. Quaid's kids were given 10,000!!!
The drug is used to flush out IV lines and prevent blood clots.
After the accidental overdose on Sunday, both babies started to 'bleed out.'
Apparently, a technician stored the Heparin in the wrong place so when the nurse grabbed the medicine for the babies without looking it was the wrong dosage.
The infants are now being given Protamine, which reverses the effects of Heparin.
The twins are now at the neo-natal intensive care unit and reportedly in stable condition.
