Patient Dies After Sedative Overdose

Recommended Posts

he probably did die of pneumonia - brought on by respiratory depression and sedation so he couldn't clear his airways.

but this is just disgraceful. why didn't the pharmacist leave a message? why do people persist in using brand names instead of compound names? the whole medication system is accidents waiting to happen - apparently half of all admissions are due to medication cock ups, although mostly to do with anticoagulants like warfarin.
