They almost overdosed my BABY!!! – My hospital called in a prescription on 3/27/2012. I called to confirm the prescription was ready for pick and was told yes. Upon arrival to collect the medicine for my 1 year old son. The employee told me to "come back tomorrow" when I explained that I was told he needed to start the medicine tonight I was told "we don't carry the medicine they will see what they can do" I was then made to wait 2 HOURS. After waiting the two hours and making it clear that they told my sons dr and myself that the perscription was available and ready and I would NOT leave with out it, the prescription was finally filled with what I was told was a "substitute". As paying for the medicine I read the label and then confirmed it was the exact medicine on my copy of the prescription. The pharmacy cashier told e they needed to determine if there was "greater need" for the medicine then my prescription since that was their last bottle!!!!
What could be a greater need then a BABY??????
After giving my son the medicine for 7 days out of his 10 day course the medicine ran out. When calling my doctor for a refill for the remaining days they went over the course and amount with me and the pharmacy printed THE WRONG AMOUNT ON THE BOTTLE. So my son essentially was being overdosed on medicine for 7 days!!!!
This is inexcusable and could have resulted in DEATH of my child.
