Dennis Quaid and Wife Suing Heparin Manufacturer

Dennis Quaid and his wife are suing the makers of heparin after their newborn twins Thomas Boone and Zoe Grace were accidentally overdosed with the drug at Cedars Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles.

The suit accuses Baxter Healthcare Corp. of Illinois of failing to put clear distinguishing labels on its 10-unit and 10,000-unit vials of heparin, and failing to recall the product after three other infants died because of a mix-up. The Quaids seek at least $50,000 in damages.

The Quaids' lawyer says the couple is filing suit in order to prevent such an accident from happening to other people.
