In late 2012, Fresenius Medical Care came under scrutiny for putting patients at risk for heart attacks and death from GranuFlo and NaturaLyte, drugs used during their kidney dialysis treatments. Collectively the facility has been accused of over 900 careless deaths. In this particular case, Fresenius is both the facilitator of the treatment AND the manufacturer of the drug, making this a seemingly slam dunk case for attorneys. However, had Fresenius only been the manufacturer, claims attorneys could have had a compelling case that shoddy dialysis technician work was to blame. Had this situation arose, technicians would not have been provided coverage from the medical center and left on their own to battle potentially hefty fines and irreparable career damage.
