Nebraska medical malpractice attorneys alert- A toddler is dead after receiving a lethal dose of Heparin at Nebraska Medical Center.
Omaha, NE—A Dallas, Texas toddler was tragically killed by an overdose of a blood-thinning drug, Heparin, while at the Nebraska Medical Center. The little girl was recovering from multiple organ transplants and gastroschisis when she was given the lethal dose of medication, as reported KETV.
Almariah Duque was nearly two years old when she was recovering from major surgery at the Nebraska Medical Center. The Duque family traveled to Nebraska because of Nebraska Medical Center’s ability to treat the toddler’s special needs. She had been admitted to the hospital since December and seemed to be making positive improvement. On Wednesday afternoon, March 31, 2010, little Almariah died after she was pronounced clinically dead that morning.
It was determined that the girl wad given too much Heparin. A Nebraska Medical Center spokesperson confirmed, “the hospital staff somehow gave the girl too much Heparin, and the hospital is doing a extensive investigation.” The hospital is reportedly trying to do everything they can to help the mother and father cope with this tragedy. It is unknown if police officials will be conducting a full investigation as well.
