A pharmacy allegedly dispensed an elderly man a chemotherapy drug instead of his prescribed immunosuppressant for several weeks, and upon realizing the error, the pharmacist tried to hide it.
The 79-year-old patient was prescribed an immunosuppressant after undergoing a kidney transplant, Radio New Zealand reported. However, the pharmacy allegedly gave him a chemotherapy drug, which the patient took for about 3 weeks before asking the pharmacist why the tablets had changed.
The pharmacist then realized that a pharmacy technician had made a mistake filling the prescription, and he had signed off on it. The pharmacist told the patient to stop taking the drug, but he did not report the error.
