In the news there’s a story that unfortunately we hear all to often at our office. A gentlemen was prescribed eye drops from his doctor for an eye issue that he was having. However Walgreens pharmacy made an error and gave him ear drops instead.
The man unknowingly used the ear drops in his eyes and it worsened his eye problems. The pharmacies are always quick to say that these prescription errors and rare and isolated incidents. However, it is our experience that these type of pharmacy generated prescription errors are happening in large numbers in pharmacies throughout the United States.
With an increasing amount of consolidation amongst the national pharmacy chains and a overall lack of supervision this already large problem will only worsen.
