ALABAMA CONTAMINATED IV FLUIDS LINKED TO PATIENT DEATHS
We are investigating claims involving the deaths of at least nine patients in Alabama hospitals related to contaminated intravenous (IV) fluids. Most of the reported deaths occurred in hospitals in the Birmingham area. The contamination has been linked to a liquid nutritional supplement.
The Alabama State Health Department reports at least 19 people in six Alabama hospitals were sickened by the infected product. The Alabama Health Department and the Centers for Disease Control and Infection (CDC) are working to identify how many people received the contaminated IV supplement. There were confirmed infections at Baptist Princeton, Baptist Shelby, Baptist Prattville, Medical West, Cooper Green Mercy and Select Specialty Hospital in Birmingham.
The IV liquid nutritional supplement was discontinued.
