Medication errors and second victims -- making things right

Medication errors in Ohio are potentially devastating. An Ohio pharmacist once served six months in jail for neglecting to detect a mistake made by a technician in mixing chemotherapy. A 2-year-old girl, receiving what was to be her last chemotherapy treatment, died as a result of the medication error in giving the girl an overdose of saline. Perhaps to cut costs, the pharmacist was working alone on the Sunday he made the mistake; with no help other than the technician who composed the fatal mixture. The fact that the pharmacist and others who have committed similar forms of medical malpractice have felt overwhelming pangs of guilt has lead to the coining of a descriptive phrase for them, the "second victim."
