Lawsuit Unveils Troubling Allegations against St. Joseph Mercy Chelsea Hospital and Remdesivir Creator.
A Lenawee County man’s lawsuit has drawn attention to a distressing incident involving St. Joseph Mercy Chelsea Hospital and the creator of Remdesivir. The man, Dan Nowacki, is taking legal action after suffering two severe strokes following what he claims was the administration of a tainted COVID drug.
Nowacki’s family is now grappling with the aftermath of the alleged incident at St. Joseph Mercy Chelsea Hospital. Kathleen, his wife, and Luke, their son, continually provides him a round-the-clock care because of what they assert was the administrationi of a contaminated COVID drug.
Attorneys from Ven Johnson Law are representing Nowacki in his lawsuit against both St. Joseph Mercy Chelsea Hospital and Gilead Sciences, Inc., the maker of Remdesivir. The lawsuit alleges that the drug administered to Nowacki in November 2021 contained glass particles.
Of the five doses Nowacki received during his stay at St. Joseph Mercy Chelsea Hospital, at least two were reportedly from the tainted batch. Just days after receiving these doses, he suffered a stroke. The lawsuit raises questions about St. Joseph Mercy Chelsea Hospital’s role in administering a potentially harmful substance.
Transparency and accountability are being sought from Gilead Sciences and St. Joseph Mercy Chelsea Hospital
Gilead Sciences, Inc. issued a voluntary recall in December, acknowledging the presence of glass particles in the drug present in some of the batches at St. Joseph Mercy Chelsea Hospital. The lawsuit raises concerns over the timing of patient notification.
The lawsuit challenges the creator’s assertion of drug immunity due to FDA approval. A Michigan judge’s recent ruling states that the “Public Readiness and Emergency Preparedness” (PREP) Act doesn’t shield a drugmaker from liability when contamination occurs.
Amidst the ongoing litigation, St. Joseph Mercy Chelsea Hospital remains silent, refraining from commenting on the allegations. This silence of St. Joseph Mercy Chelsea Hospital raises questions about transparency, accountability, and patient communication.
The allegations against St. Joseph Mercy Chelsea Hospital and Remdesivir’s manufacturer underscore the importance of transparency, accountability, and patient safety.
