bbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbb bbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbTha nk you for the continuing coverage of this terrible tragedy. I am pleased to hear the hospital leadershsip will make every effort to prevent this type of error from occurring again. They must focus on the systems that allowed this error to occur, and other hospitals across the country need to look at that level as well. Making nurses and pharmacists promise to be more careful is not responsive to the root of the problem- confusing medications that even dedicated personnel can mistake during the delivery of patient care.
