Failure to notify physicians of dialysis solution adjustment leads to wrongful death

In a recently reported wrongful death case, one of America's largest kidney dialysis clinics, DaVita, Inc., was found liable for compensatory and punitive damages arising out of the wrongful deaths of patients who suffered fatal cardiac arrests or ischemic strokes after undergoing dialysis with GranuFlo. DaVita used that dialysis solution which has an increased concentration of acetate that converts to bicarbonate in the body. Even though GranuFlo's manufacturer advised DaVita to notify physicians to adjust patient's bicarbonate prescriptions downward when they were undergoing dialysis with GranuFlo, DaVita did not provide the notification, and many physicians did not make necessary adjustments. This case is yet another example of how poor communication inflicts needless injury and death upon patients. Our office has substantial experience with companies that provide dialysis and in issues similar to this. We seek accountability from those whose negligence or recklessness has caused injury or death of your loved one. We are here to help you navigate a difficult time, please contact us at 872-225-0195 or send us a message online for a free consultation.
