I received the wrong medication at my local Walgreens that caused me a trip to the hospital. Can I get my hospital bills reimbursed, and should I report this incident to the state?

When a Walgreens pharmacy error occurs and you are on the receiving end of it, you should definitely hold the pharmacy accountable for your medical bills and any other expenses you incurred as a result of the medication mix-up. Hospital bills can be expensive, and it can be even more frustrating if the pharmacy error caused you to miss out on earning wages. You may be entitled to your medical expenses, lost income, and pain and suffering.

Because it’s not enough to be reimbursed for the expenses you incurred as a result of their error, you should also report their mistake to the state. Every state has an agency that oversees pharmacy errors. You will need to fill out a form and send it in to your State Board of Pharmacy. Once they receive your notice, they will investigate the error. However, you should know that they aren’t going to get involved with you getting reimbursed.

What the State Board of Pharmacy does is document pharmacy errors, review such errors, and make decisions on whether or not to reprimand pharmacies or pharmacists for their medication mistakes. Sometimes, this can involve fining a pharmacy or suspending a Walgreens pharmacist’s license due to the error that occurred.

If you are looking to hold the pharmacy or negligent pharmacist accountable, you will need to speak with a lawyer to help you pursue a pharmacy malpractice claim.
