A medical-malpractice lawsuit alleges hospital staff negligently administered an intravenous bag containing approximately 60 times the dose of prescribed sodium


Intravenous news: The Chicago Sun-Times report “A Chicago couple filed a medical-malpractice lawsuit Tuesday blaming Advocate Lutheran General Hospital in Park Ridge for the death of their 6-week-old son, saying the hospital’s staff negligently gave little Genesis Burkett an intravenous bag containing “approximately 60 times the dose of sodium ordered by the physician.” Genesis died last Oct. 15, one month and nine days after he was born prematurely at Lutheran General, according to the lawsuit filed in Cook County Circuit Court, which says he was making good progress at the hospital until a pharmacy technician incorrectly filled a doctor’s order for the IV fluid.”
