Pharmacists or physicians -- who is watching the drugs?

Readers in the Mt. Laurel area know that a medication error can have deadly consequences. A wrong dosage could either cause an overdose or fail to treat an illness, and an incorrect prescription could cause a fatal allergic reaction. Incorrect record keeping or other error could also lead to the prescription of a drug that could interact in dangerous ways with another drug.

Second child dies in care of New Jersey dentist

A mother in New Jersey took her 3-year-old son to a dentist for a routine procedure. The boy was placed in a kind of papoose to restrain him while he was given a local anesthetic and his cavities were filled. But according to the mother, the little boy's body went limp, and his lips turned blue. He had stopped breathing. The child was later pronounced dead at a New Jersey hospital, and the dentist who gave the little boy anesthetic is now under investigation for medical negligence.

New Jersey man's estate awarded after doctor fails to diagnose

A New Jersey man was experiencing shortness of breath and chest pains when he visited South Jersey Healthcare-Regional Medical Center. The doctor who treated the man diagnosed him with a mere virus and sent him home without a prescription. The next day, the ailing man, fearing his imminent death, quickly wrote up a will that named his best friend as the executor of his estate. The sick man soon collapsed and lost consciousness from what was later determined to be a pulmonary embolism. Sadly, he was declared deceased when he arrived at the hospital.
