A man over 80 was suffering from Parkinson’s disease. He was the victim of pharmacy malpractice when he received the wrong medicine from the mail order pharmacy that had been sending him his Parkinson’s medication. The prescription refill medication looked like the medicine he was supposed to receive. After taking the wrong medicine for a couple of weeks, he started getting very lethargic and his heart beat became irregular. He was put in the hospital and he had to have a pacemaker put in to stimulate his heart to beat regular. After the surgery the medication error was finally discovered. His doctor concluded the wrong medication he was receiving caused the irregular heart beat and as a result he underwent unnecessary surgery.
