Case in Point
Man sues hospital for being injected with green clothing dye

A Chicago patient seen at Northwestern Memorial Hospital has filed a lawsuit against the hospital for alleged IV medication errors. The lawsuit claims the hospital injected him with green clothing dye.

The 34-year-old Chicago man claims he went to the hospital for an angiogram, which often includes injecting patients with a fluorescent dye used to make it easier to view blood cells. According to the suit, the drug administered did not have FDA packaging and that doctors had called for “IC Green,” which comes in a powder form. The dye injected into the patient was a liquid. The pharmacy allegedly pulled the clothing dye and medical staff did not catch the error.

The man claims he suffered permanent lung damage to his because of the dye and also developed a seizure disorder which he may have to treat with medication for the rest of his life. The lawsuit, filed in Cook County Circuit Court, seeks compensation for $450,000 plus attorney's fees
