Iíve had my little run ins with the little techs who think they know it all. You think 25 million is very excessive. Maybe it might make a company stand up and take notice that an employee they hired was not competent and their responsible for the actions of their employee and they should screen their employees better before they hire them and have stricter punishments for not following company procedures, so maybe they might be a little more concerned with doing their job properly. Yes, people should check their RX, but to most people dosages are confusing. My Mom had breast cancer and died from a blood clot in her lungs. When your loved one is going through all they are going through with breast cancer, you have a million things thrown at you to deal with. So you expect to be able to trust someone to do their job in the medical field. Excessive, maybe, but I donít feel sorry for Walgreens. I feel sorry for the family who had to experience the result this mistake had on their loved one and the suffering this lady went through because of the 19 year old tech. The life of a loved one is priceless in my opinion

I'm sorry, but the only more annoying than the stupid ads on this forum is bringing up DEAD topic threads that have no relevance whatsoever.

Why not discuss how Walgreens is getting sued by EXA/ASMs? Or how they're screwing over MGTs? Better yet, instead of constantly complaining about this company, why discuss ways to hold them accountable and shoot for a positive change that truly benefits US? There were protests in Arizona (I think): what became of that? Why can't the entire Walgreens nation get involved? Fear of failure or job loss? People, Walgreens doesn't care about you! Wake up already and do something!

I am. I'M SUING!
