Walgreens Pharmacy Error Lawyers in Louisiana, Mississippi & Tennessee
A pharmacy is supposed to be there to help you overcome what’s ailing you—not leave you ailing more.

You’ve probably been in a Walgreens.
You see Walgreens stores all over the United States. The company said it had more than 9,000 stores as of 2020, and that 78 percent of everyone in America lived within five miles of a Walgreens. It reported seeing 8 million customers in its stores every day.
Louisiana had 172 Walgreens stores at last count. Mississippi had 83. Tennessee had 271.

Do Medication Errors Happen Often?
In 2021, NBC News reported on pharmacists under intense pressure to accomplish more with less support. It was a story of pharmacy workers overworked, understaffed and rushing to do their work.
“You’re not only running to the drive-thru but to the front, to the vaccination station to give a vaccination, then to the phone,” said one pharmacist in the report. “It’s almost impossible for any human to keep that momentum day in and out.”
An article in The New York Times in 2020 reported the same problems, and how the stress on pharmacy workers leads to mistakes.
One Walgreens patient in the article was given ear drops when he was supposed to get eye drops. He didn’t realize the mix-up, and he ended up in the emergency room with burning and swollen eyes.
Another Walgreens customer got the wrong dose of Adderall, sending her to the hospital with shortness of breath, dizziness and blurred vision.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) reported getting 100,000 complaints a year about medication errors.
But the total number of pharmacy errors that happen is likely much larger. The New York Times article said one study several years ago found an estimated 1.5 million people in the United States harmed by pharmacy errors every year.
So the unfortunate answer to whether medication errors happen often is yes.
