Mock trials help boost awareness of consequences of pharmacy errors

Comments (0)

A group of pharmacy students received a big lesson in professional liability this month as Auburn University's Harrison School of Pharmacy in Alabama held a mock criminal trial over a pharmacist error that killed a two-year-old patient.

The case was real and it happened in 2006, when an Ohio pharmacist was charged with reckless homicide after a pharmacy technician incorrectly mixed a chemotherapy solution with the wrong amount of sodium chloride. The pharmacist on duty failed to catch the technician's fatal mistake and the child died following the prescription error.

This is a great way to impress upon first-year students the duty of care they must uphold, and how one mistake can cost a human life.

We take for granted that health professionals can do no wrong
The dean of the pharmacy school said, "It's a lesson our student pharmacists need to practice now. They are a trusted medical professional from this point on."

Indeed, we trust our pharmacy practitioners every day and trust that we are handed the right prescription, with the correct instructions, when we are at the pharmacy. But mistakes do happen more often than the public knows. Unfortunately, corporate pharmacy practices do more to cause errors than prevent them. Pharmacists work grueling schedules, often without proper breaks, and this is a huge cause of medication errors nationwide.

Your rights after a prescription mistake injury
When patients are harmed by medication mistakes or wrong dosage mistakes the consequences can be life-altering or even fatal. But if you or a loved one suffered injuries after a pharmacy error you you can take action to recover compensation for injuries.
