Walgreens Pharmacy Gave Wrong Prescription for Two Months
Walgreens pharmacy committed a prescription error by giving a child the wrong medicine for two months. Instead of a drug to treat hand tremors, the child received a steroid. This caused the boy to start puberty early and caused him to go into "rages." Such a mistake is unacceptable. In fact, the pharmacists at this Walgreens had asked for more staffing from Walgreen's corporate management to help him with the high volume at his store. He was simply understaffed to handle the prescriptions but Walgreens apparently didn't want to spend money on more staff.
