Lawsuit claims woman’s untreated hypertension leads to death

The family of a Kentucky woman who was the victim of a pharmacy error is filing a wrongful-death lawsuit against a Kentucky Walgreens and one of its pharmacists, claiming a Louisville woman died after getting the wrong prescription.

Instead of receiving her blood pressure medication Hydralazine at a Kentucky Walgreens, Mary Moore was given an antihistamine. The lawsuit states that she was not given counseling when she picked up her medication, which would have allowed the pharmacist to correct the mistake.

Moore’s hypertension went untreated for two weeks before the pharmacy discovered the error. Moore was soon hospitalized and the lawsuit claims that “it was too late” and Moore died.

Walgreens pharmacy error claims

The corporate mentality of big-chain pharmacies like Walgreens is to fill as many prescription as possible. Many pharmacists work long shifts without breaks in order to meet company quotas and pharmacies nationwide rely on pharmacy technicians to fill prescriptions. Some states don't even require a high school diploma in order to be a pharmacy technician.
