QUAID WINS HOSPITAL SUIT

Thesp Dennis Quaid awarded $$$ from malpractice case.

A LA hospital Cedars Sinai foul up left he and wife Kimberly's twins,  Thomas and Zoe, fighting for their lives after they were mistakenly given a near fatal amount of blood thinner Heparin.

Papers filed in Los Angeles Superior Court stated "The settlement is the result of extensive negotiations between the parties and their respective legal representatives, and is intended to avoid the time, expense and uncertainty of litigation." 

The amount is believed to be $750,000 in damages.

Both Quaid children have since recovered and are doing more than OK.

Quaid is also suing the drug manufacturer but the decision in the Cedars case is inadmissible.

Quaid reps have declined to comment when queried.
