Dennis Quaid -- Cedars Really Stepped It Up

3/10/2009 1:35 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Dennis Quaid returned to the hospital that almost killed his twins -- but he's now applauding Cedars-Sinai Medical Center for taking steps to make sure it never happens again.

Dennis Quaid: Click to watch
As TMZ first reported, the twins nearly died last year when they were given an overdose of a blood thinner called Heparin, and on today's "Oprah" he toured Cedars to see how they've improved the system with computerized record keeping.

He looked pleased with the results -- and also said his kids are now "healthy and happy."

He must have gotten a BIG settlement from his lawsuit on the hospital to have had such an about face in opinion about the twins care. AHH, MONEY CAN SOLVE EVERYTHING NOW CANT IT!!!

If Quaid hadn't been a celebrity, the hospital would have done nothing. Our society is media driven. The right thing is done only when everyone is watching.

# 3 If you read the article properly then you would see that he did not applaud the twins care he applauded the hospital to see how the improved their system to ensure this doesn't happen to any other babies. They have a new computerized system that monitors what drugs are given and how much so that possible overdoses can be flagged or if wrong medication has been given out. And #4 so what if he's a celebrity and he pushed for this it is the average person who will benefit from it so how is that wrong. It's not like he is the one who will be benefiting from the system, good for him to use his clout to force the hospital into upgrading, better that than staying the same and allowing it to happen to another child!!!

It's good to see people ask attention for these problems and it's awful what happened to his babies. That should never never happen.

However, I still think Quaid himself is an a**. A serial cheater, who drinks and parties way too much. I hope his wife realizes her kids deserve better.
