    • Overview

      This monograph explains how the family and friends of people who are in the healthcare professions are at greater risk of harm from medications used as weapons, than are people who have no relatives in the healthcare professions. The hazards of medication use are magnified for those who live with or near someone who has easy access to hazardous medications. Case studies of harm done to family and friends of healthcare workers, by healthcare workers, are reviewed.
