$8.25 million settlement for Illinois couple whose newborn died from wrong IV dose

Comments (0)

The largest settlement for an Illinois pharmacy error case was just announced after a Park Ridge hospital agreed to pay $8.25 million to a couple whose baby died after receiving a fatal sodium dose in his IV.

The baby was born premature in 2010, but survived despite weighing 1 pound, 8 ounces. When he was 40 days old the hospital pharmacy made a fatal dosage mistake and the newborn received a fatal dose of sodium chloride in his IV after heart surgery. The baby died after receiving the dose.

An investigation showed the hospital pharmacy error occurred because the dosage for the boy’s IV was entered incorrectly into the machine that mixes IV solutions.

Couple files wrongful death suit over wrong dosage mistake
The parents of the baby filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Advocate Lutheran General Hospital in Park Ridge.
The lawsuit claimed that the hospital pharmacy made an error which resulted in their child receiving a dose 60 times the amount prescribed by the doctor, which caused the baby to go into cardiac arrest and die.

The hospital recently offered to settle the case for $8.25 million — the largest settlement in Illinois for this case type, according to reports. According to reports, the hospital has made changes in its procedures in order to prevent similar mistakes from occurring in the future.

What to do if your family suffered a hospital pharmacy mistake
If you or someone you love is harmed by a hospital pharmacy error or a wrong dosage error you should contact a personal injury lawyer immediately. You may have a legitimate claim against the pharmacy, the doctor or the hospital.
