In my Pharmacy Law class we just learned about a case where a Pharmacist forgot to put the little sticker on a girl's birth control Rx that said "Antibiotics may render oral contraception ineffective" or some **** like that. Girl got an infection, was prescribed antibiotics (the pharmacist should have also informed her of the risk when she filled that prescription as well), girl got pregnant, girl sued the Pharmacist and pharmacy for damages and 18 years of child support. And won.

Pharmacist was sued for child support when he forgot to put the warning label on a birth control prescription and the chick got pregnant.

That happened with my gf too. She had a sinus infection and neither her doctor or the pharmacist mentioned it. I'm just lucky I already knew about that otherwise I'd probably have a squealing crib midget too.

Pharmacists statistically screw up the label on one out of every 50,000 labels. Sounds rare, but since we do an average of 300-400 prescriptions a day, it does tend to happen every once in a while. Usually the patient can notice a mistake just by taking a second to read the label, so nothing bad happens, but occasionally something turns out badly. Way to keep your eye out.
