Belleville, IL - A Belleville (IL) hospital, along with a local pharmacy, is being sued by a patient for allegedly giving him contaminated medication following a heart surgery, causing her to contract an infection. Melissa Owens has filed a 3-count complaint against defendants Dr. John D. Sadoff, St. Elizabeth’s Hospital, and New England Compounding Pharmacy Incorporated on 27th October in the Saint Clair County Court.
The complaint says Owens underwent an open heart surgery at defendant St. Elizabeth’s Hospital on 27th August, 2012. The coronary bypass surgery was performed by Sadoff. Subsequent to the heart operation, Owens developed a very severe infection, the suit says. On 26th October, 2012, she came to know that her infection was a result of taking contaminated drugs produced by the New England Compounding Pharmacy, according to the complaint. The plaintiff says the medications weren’t sterile.
