Greetings everyone, I noticed a disparaging news report about CVS today. Apparantly, a CVS store in NJ dispensed breast cancer pills to children who were supposed to receive fluoride tablets. It seems as though the CVS Pharmacy Service Initiative we read about in a case study is still a work in progress and CVS’s safety processes need improvement. Although no injuries to the children who received the incorrect medication occurred due to this dispensing error, there is every reason to believe that the mistake could have potentially involved a more potent medication and put the lives of those kids at risk.
Here is a link to that story.
