Medication Errors

Do you look at prescription medication before you take it? Do you check the description to make sure it matches what you’re supposed to be taking?

Did you know that a jury recently awarded $21,573,993 to a four(4) year old boy, one of the largest verdicts of the year?  Why?  Was this another case of the jury system run amok? In November 2006, a woman went into the hospital expecting to deliver twins, a boy and a girl.  The girl came […]
