    • Overview

      Emily Jerry was nearly ready to go home from a Cleveland hospital. The grapefruit-size tumor in her abdomen seemed gone, and the 2-year-old was getting one last round of chemotherapy just to make sure. Instead, a medication error killed her. A pharmacy technician mixed Emily's chemotherapy drug with a saline solution 26 times above normal. The pharmacist-on-duty was eventually convicted of involuntary manslaughter. Join us in reviewing the facts of this case that has nationwide impact and is the cause of significant changes in the pharmacy profession. Attention Florida Pharmacists & Technicians: This one hour presentation does not satisfy the medication errors requirement for the State of Florida.
