The class-action complaints cite two patients who died of cardiac arrest while receiving treatment from DaVita. Stella Nunes, a California resident, suffered a fatal heart attack on Dec. 26, 2012, while receiving dialysis treatment. Jean Thornton, a Wisconsin resident, suffered a fatal heart attack shortly after returning home from treatment at a DaVita clinic in Nov. 2011, according to the lawsuit. The lawsuit claims that these deaths could have been prevented had DaVita properly monitored the bicarbonate levels of its patients and tracked deaths and complications associated with its use of GranuFlo and NaturaLyte.The lawsuits claim that DaVita is guilty of negligence for failing to protect its patients from the products.
