Well known local pharmacy chains may fill over 2 million prescriptions per day. In order to do this, these pharmacies must have competent and qualified personnel, such as certified pharmacists and technicians, overseeing quality control behind the counter. Many of these extremely busy pharmacies fail to provide the quality control that we consumers need to rely on for safe and accurate filling of our drug prescriptions. The result of these understaffed pharmacies and sometimes unqualified pharmacy employees is that prescriptions may be misfilled with dire consequences.
A misfilled prescription to a person with some form of compromised health can often be tragic. Such pharmacy negligence can lead to organ failure, seizures, hospitalization, brain injury or even death.
