Take, for instance, the tragic case of Michael Jackson, whose passing in Summer 2009 was attributed to medical malpractice when his personal physician, Dr. Conrad Murray, admitted to violating standard medical protocol in his treatment of the pop star. Murray was convicted of involuntary manslaughter the following year.
In an equally chilling but slightly less tragic example, Dennis Quaid’s newborn twins were mistakenly injected with approximately 1,000 times the recommended dose of Heparin, an anti-clotting mediation, when a technician accidentally stocked 10-milligram and 10,000-milligram doses in the same drawer. Fortunately, the twins were mostly unharmed, although previous mix-ups of a similar nature have resulted in deaths.
