When your baby doesn’t act normal, prescription errors could be to blame

Comments (0)

Parents know when their baby is not acting normal. Even a small change in a baby’s cry can signal to a parent that something is wrong. If your baby is crying too much, looks pale, or appears drowsy it may be the effects of a prescription error.

The horror of realizing that a pharmacy gave you the wrong medication for your baby is frightening. The first instinct would be to go to the emergency room, which is the best step to take. A prescription mistake or dosage mistake for a baby can have devastating consequences, since their small bodies cannot handle large amounts of medication.

Case in Point
Walgreens dispenses Oxycodone instead of hydrocortisone for two-year-old’s prescription

A reported case from 2010 stated that Walgreens dispensed the wrong medication to a two-year-old and the parents were given the opiate Oxycodone instead of hydrocortisone. Minutes after the mother administered the medication to her child she noticed that her baby seemed drowsy and that he developed a rash. It turned out the prescription was for another patient with the same last name and first initial.

The baby was rushed to the hospital and held in the intensive care unit and reportedly recovered. The pain and torture of going through something like this is not something that any parent ever wants to go through. And it is not your fault if a pharmacy prescribed the wrong medication to your child.

Errors can originate in the pharmacy, or at the doctor’s office
Most pharmacists take great care to verify prescriptions, but too often some prescriptions fall through the cracks. Other times, the mistake begins because a doctor forgot to change a medication dose for a baby. If a pharmacist does not catch that mistake devastating or even fatal events can occur.

Victims of child prescription errors have rights to file a claim against the pharmacy
Pharmacies have a duty of care to ensure you are receiving the correct medication. When they breach that duty you have rights to file a claim for compensation for pharmacy malpractice. If you would like to take action against a pharmacy for a pharmacy mistake or dosage error you can contact our lawyers at 1-888-526-7616 today to start a free case review. You can also order our free book, How to Make Pharmacies Pay for Injuries Caused by Medication Errors.
