NYC Medical Malpractice Attorney: Erring Doctors Must Be Held Liable

Despite efforts to root out medical malpractice in the field, some remain unpunished by the U.S. judicial system. Case in point: Veterans Affairs (VA) pharmacists.

Testimonies from colleagues and other records revealed that some VA pharmacists have been in hot water for prescription and medication errors. A chemotherapy patient, for example, died in 2001 after it was revealed via a subsequent investigation that he received five times the prescribed amount. Despite this, however, the pharmacist responsible wasn’t charged whatsoever.
