What Justice Looks Like After a Child Medication Error

When something or someone injuries a child, parents just hope and pray that their child will be able to bounce back and recover from the injury. While a child’s health is the most important thing a parent can hope for in this situation, justice is also something a parent would probably want; this could include compensation for the medical bills and pain and suffering, as well as to make sure harm doesn’t come to another child.

Such is the case of a Rhode Island couple who are speaking out about a dispensing error a pharmacist made last year. According to Jeff and Erin Norman, their 11-month-old daughter could have died after receiving the wrong medication.

Former Rhode Island senator turned pharmacist, Leo Blais, had his pharmacy license suspended last year after this dispensing error in which two children received and ingested mislabeled morphine. The Normans kept quiet because their daughter survived and Blais was punished; however, they are concerned why health officials recently reinstated Blais’ pharmacy license.

The Rhode Island Department of Health stated that it is looking into giving Blais his license back, but it has not made a final decision. It did say that his license will be on probation for the next two years, which means that he can’t serve as a head pharmacist. According to health records, Blias has made a number of pharmacy errors and violations over the years, which is why the Normans want to know why he is still practicing after making so many mistakes. In fact, the Normans told Eyewitness News that suspension is not enough, and they want his license revoked.

Unfortunately, this situation is not unique. There are many pharmacists still practicing in local pharmacies throughout this nation who have made serious pharmacy errors. If your little one suffered a child medication error caused by a negligent pharmacist, please contact Kennedy Hodges, L.L.P. for help seeking justice.
