Lawsuit Filed Over Filling Of Prescription

An alleged pharmacy prescription error is the basis for a recently-filed lawsuit in St. Clair County court.  The lawsuit is described in the September 14, 2015 Madison Record article titled “Wal-Mart and pharmacist sued over claims of negligence after allegedly filing wrong prescription.”

Two excerpts from the article:

On Feb. 3, the complaint states, Turner brought a prescription for Cardura, a medication to treat high blood pressure, to the Cahokia Wal-Mart pharmacy, where Hurtte instead provided him Warfarin, a blood thinner, without Turner’s consent or knowledge. Turner was not prescribed a blood thinner, the complaint states, and a blood thinner was actually contra-indicated when the patient has high blood pressure.


The complaint alleges Wal-Mart and Hurtte were negligent in providing Turner the wrong prescription. Turner seeks a judgment of $50,000 against each defendant, plus court costs.

Additional details regarding this Illinois lawsuit concerning an alleged error in filling a prescription can be seen in a variety of media sources, including the Madison Record article mentioned above.
