The lawsuit is filed on behalf of the family of Mary Ellen Kise, who died at Baptist Health Systems hospital in Prattville. Birmingham based Meds IV is named as a defendant. The company produced an intravenous feeding solution, which was recalled March 24 after it was found to be contaminated with a dangerous bacteria.
