Recently a young woman, Mareena Silva, was mistakenly given the wrong medication intended for another customer, Maria Silva, at a Safeway pharmacy in Colorado. Attorneys and co-hosts Bob Ambrogi and J. Craig Williams welcome Attorney Chad Cook, a member of the Mass Torts Section at Beasley, Allen, Crow, Methvin, Portis & Miles, P.C. and Dr. Shannon J. Johnson, a pharmacist with PharmDmand, a private pharmacy-consulting firm, to take a look at this incident and pharmacy errors. They talk about the legal issues pharmacies can face due to prescription errors and pharmacy misfills, get a pharmacist’s perspective and discuss how these errors can be prevented.
