Medication Errors in Indiana Result in Injuries, Deaths

Indiana residents are injured and killed every year as a result of prescription medication errors. Indiana's experience is mirrored on a national level. A 2006 report from the National Academy of Science's Institute fo Medicine estimated that 1.5 million people every year are harmed by medication errors in the United States. The issue received national attention in late 2007 when actor Dennis Quaid's newborn twins received accidental overdoses of a blood-thinning drug.
