Dennis Quaid Isn’t Buying It

March 28th, 2008 // 5 Comments

Here’s Dennis Quaid post-baby OD scare. Some dumbass fed his twin newborns 1000 times the proper dose of a blood thinner called Heparin last year and almost killed them. He’s thanking all the
medical healthcare journalists for their articles that helped him during the crisis.

“I do have a greater appreciation of life in general,” said Quaid. He spoke at the Association of Health Care Journalists’s annual conference in Washington, D.C. yesterday.

“If they hadn’t made it, it really would have changed my life. But they did survive. So it changed my attitude.” he said.

Quaid, 53, and his wife Kimberly, 36, have filed a lawsuit against Heparin manufacturer Baxter Healthcare Corp. They are accusing the company of negligence due to their packaging adult and pediatric doses in similar-looking vials. State regulators fined Cedars-Sinai hospital $25,000 for the mistake.

Doesn’t he have a kid with Meg Ryan? Where’s he?

    doesn’t the other son live with ryan.

    re heparin — that’s that contaminated drug that’s being pulled after being linked to several deaths. one of the ingredients comes from pig intestines; and this drug is ‘manufactured’ in china.

    As I understand it, Jack (Quaid’s son with Ryan) can’t stand his stepmother and doesn’t spend much time with Quaid anymore.

    Jack Quaid was at conference with his dad. Other pics on other sites on the Net the Net show him there all suited up and looking serious. Perhaps he wants to support his dad. Wouldn’t that be a surprise to the old gossipy hens, here!

    THIS site even has a pic of Jack Quaid standing next to his dad! You guys (and I) must all be a bit myopic…in more ways than one! Look closely at the photos.

    Heparin is not a drug that can be “fed”. It is an intravenous medication. I am a nurse. I make no excuses for a medication error, but I dare you to follow me around on one 12 hour shift, and then call me a “dumb ass”. Nurses are who keeps your butt alive.
