Pharmacy accused of committing medication error

It is very important for pharmacies to not commit negligent errors when filling prescriptions for individuals. This is because these types of prescription medication errors can cause individuals great harm. No person should have to be exposed to health risks because a pharmacy acted negligently when filling a prescription for him or her.

Recently, a case has arisen involving an alleged prescription medication error. The case involves a pharmacy from West Virginia. Allegedly, in August of 2009, a woman asked the pharmacy to refill a prescription for her son.

The woman claims that the pharmacy acted negligently in regards to refilling this prescription and gave her the wrong medication.

The woman claims that when she received this medication, she asked the pharmacy about it. According to the woman, the pharmacy assured her that the medication was the correct kind.

According to the woman, her son took this medication for six days before it was ultimately discovered that it was not the correct medication. The woman claims that this resulted in her son suffering injuries.

The woman and her husband have now brought a lawsuit in West Virginia against the pharmacy in connection to the above allegations.

The allegations in this case demonstrate how individuals can suffer great harm when pharmacies and/or their staff act negligently when it comes to filling prescriptions. Thus, one hopes pharmacies and their staff make sure to do everything they reasonably can to ensure that they do not give individuals incorrect medications when filling a prescription.
