Tragedy - Cedars-Sinai forced to apologize to Dennis Quaid over drug overdose

Who's apologizing now?

Cedars - one of LA's best hospitals - made a stupid mistake and it could be fatal. Dennis Quaid's twins are not out of the woods yet. Our thoughts and prayers are with them today:

Full statement here: I want to extend my deepest apologies to the families who were affected by this situation, and we will continue to work with them on any concerns or questions they may have. This was a preventable error, involving a failure to follow our standard policies and procedures, and there is no excuse for that to occur at Cedars-Sinai. Although it appears at this point that there was no harm to any patient, we take this situation very seriously. We are conducting a comprehensive investigation, cooperating fully with the Los Angeles County Department of Health Services and will take all necessary steps to ensure that this never happens here again.
