Nevada: Class Action Lawsuit Filed Against Las Vegas Clinic
February 29, 2008
A class action lawsuit was filed late Thursday against the Endoscopy Center of Southern Nevada (ECSN), one day after health officials said the center is believed to have reused syringes and contaminated vials of medication.
The suit, filed in the Eighth Judicial District Court of Nevada, names as defendants ECSN; its chief administrator, Dipak Desai; a center doctor, Eladio Carrera; and any employee who "directly provided and/or supervised" unsafe medical procedures.
A spokesperson for ECSN did not immediately return a call seeking comment.
