Cedars Fined in Quaid Incident

Cedars-Sinai Medical Center has been fined $25,000 for the staff errors that led to overdoses of blood thinners being administered to three infants, including Dennis Quaid’s newborn twins, Thomas Boone and Zoe Grace, in November.

“The hospitals take this extremely seriously,” state deputy director Kathleen Billingsley told the Los Angeles Times Thursday. Cedars was one of 11 facilities fined for various violations, she said.

GOOOOD!!  Now, don’t get me wrong – I would hope this would be the case for non-publicized cases as well.I’ve spent time with my newborn in the NICU.  I CAN imagine what they’ve gone through.  It’s the most agonizing, helpless, soul wrenching experience.
