CHLA Failed to Update “Ancient” Cryogenic Freezer That Should Have Been Replaced in 1998 … And Then Turned Off The Alarms! Young Child With High-Risk Cancer Dependent on Stem Cells for Treatment is One of 56 Victims of CHLA.
LOS ANGELES///August 19, 2020///When the cryogenic freezer at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles (CHLA) containing precious stem cells for 56 children suffering from cancer finally failed, the disaster happened 21 years after CHLA should have replaced the freezer … and months after CHLA deliberately turned off the alarms warning them that the freezer was becoming unstable and starting to fail, according to a lawsuit filed today by Peiffer Wolf Carr Kane & Conway (Peiffer Wolf) on behalf of a Los Angeles area child identified as “EF” and his parents. Peiffer Wolf is representing multiple families devastated by CHLA; more families are expected to seek justice in the coming weeks.
