Greenberg Stone & Urbano have sued the same Boca Raton, Florida CVS pharmacy twice in a week for failing to properly fill and dispense medication to its customers. In this latest suit, attorney Stewart Greenberg alleges that the CVS store located at 7016 Bera Casa Way, Boca Raton, Florida, gave a powerful and dangerous anticonvulsant that was never prescribed to an elderly woman recovering from surgery and already under several medications. As a result, the woman had severe side effects which affected her recovery. The same CVS pharmacy has been sued by Mr. Weitzner on behalf of another woman who was prescribed medication to raise her usual low blood pressure, but given a medication to further lower it.
According to attorney Greenberg, given how close they occurred to each other, we should be concerned about these errors.
"You have to worry when you see this kind of mistake being made with such frequency", he said. "It is alarming and it makes one wonder whether this pattern is systemic at this pharmacy".
Both of Mr. Greenberg's clients required medical attention after the mistakes of the pharmacy took place, although details of their conditions were not released. The pharmacy chain has not yet filed a response to the lawsuits.
"The firm's main concern is that our client's rights are protected and that they make a full recovery", says Mr. Greenberg. Having seen these serious mistakes happen at the same pharmacy, we feel it is important to let consumers know of the risk and that they should check that their prescriptions have been filled correctly, regardless of whether they were filled at this particular pharmacy or not."
According to research, pharmaceutical mistakes, including wrong medications or dosages, are made with about 10 percent of all prescriptions filled.
