Attorney Chad Cook discusses Legal Issues of Pharmacy Error

| Medical Drugs

Chad Cook, shareholder with Beasley, Allen, Crow, Methvin, Portis & Miles, P.C., who practices in the firm’s Mass Torts Section, joins attorneys and co-hosts Bob Ambrogi and J. Craig Williams on the broadcast program “Lawyer to Lawyer” to discuss the legal implications surrounding pharmacy errors and pharmacy misfills. Recently a young woman was mistakenly given the wrong medication intended for another customer at a Safeway pharmacy in Colorado. Cook says these errors happen more often than people would think, citing an Auburn University School of Pharmacy study that revealed one out of every 1,000 prescriptions filled was in error, which would equal about 3.5 million errors every year based on national prescription volume.

A positive manner

Several years ago my brother and sister -in-law were in a terrible car accident. My sister in-law was paralyzed from her neck down. Beasley Allen handled the case for my brother to see to it that my sister-in-law received the proper and necessary care she needed. I appreciate the attorneys and staff of Beasley Allen in handling this matter quickly and in a positive manner. Good job Beasley Allen!!
