Anna McKenna, a British woman, was undergoing chemotherapy in 2006. Her pharmacist made a mistake, and she received four times the amount of chemotherapy chemicals she required — an error that lasted four treatment sessions and killed her.

The prescription paperwork mysteriously vanished when an investigation into why she had been given a fatal overdose of chemotherapy was launched. The pharmacist who made the fatal mistake was never identified, and no criminal charges were ever filed. There are currently no plans to hold the pharmacist responsible for this manslaughter death of an innocent patient.

Doctors and pharmacists continue to get away with murder.

Isn’t it fascinating that when victims are killed by pharmaceutical drugs, doctors and pharmacists are never held accountable for their contributions to these tragedies? You will be held accountable if you kill someone by running over them with your car. If you accidentally shoot your best friend while hunting, you’re held accountable (unless you’re the Vice President of the United States, of course). If you have a swimming pool in your backyard and an inebriated neighbor drowns in it, you will be held responsible as well. However, if you’re a doctor or pharmacist, and you prescribe a fatal dose of toxic chemicals to a patient, you’re off the hook!

Doctors and pharmacists have gotten away with murder for so long that no one remembers what it’s like to hold them accountable. They are, after all, in the minority. business dealing in poisons And when you’re dealing in poison, Professionals in the workforce must maintain a certain level of personal responsibility. In this situation, we see a complete abandonment of any notion of professionalism. When the patient dies, they simply “forget the paperwork” to cover their tracks.

A pharmacist’s job is quite demanding. Stress is high, and there is a lot of pharmacological information to memorize. safety, Drug interactions, dosage recommendations, and so on. However, the primary reason the job is so difficult is that the pharmaceuticals they are dealing with are so dangerous. toxic in the first place.

Oops, we’re sorry

In such a high stress, In a chemically hazardous setting, mistakes are unavoidable. But it is no reason to abdicate responsibility for such blunders. If a structural engineer makes a mistake and people die as a result, for example, that individual is held accountable for their professional negligence. mistakes. Why are pharmacists and doctors frequently given a pass when their own mistakes kill people?

In this case, the victim’s family only got an apology. “North Bristol NHS “The Trust would like to take this opportunity to express its heartfelt condolences and apologies to Mrs McKenna’s family and friends,” said Dr Chris Burton, Medical Director of North Bristol NHS Trust.

(In other words, “Sorry about that. Your family member is no longer alive, and all we have to offer is this pathetic apology.”)

Dr. Burton continued, “Patient safety is our top priority, and we’re following Mrs. McKenna’s lead. death, We made quick and major adjustments to our Idarubicin prescribing and distribution methods.”

As a result, they waited until someone died before beefing up their safety protocols. So why not? When there are no criminal charges, fines, or taking responsibility for their mistakes, is there really any motivation to avoid making mistakes in the first place?

Keep all of this in mind if you or a loved one is thinking about chemotherapy. Keep in mind that chemotherapy can kill you, and no one will be held accountable for your death. If you die, they’ll simply say, “Oops!” and offer a feeble apology. Then it’s back to business as usual, making big bucks while doing it. patients buy the farm.

That’s the cancer industry

today — a death and profit industry in which patients are routinely killed by the very chemicals that doctors claim are saving them.

To date, despite the millions of people who have been treated with chemotherapy, no one has ever been cured of cancer with chemo. However, it has claimed the lives of countless people. And I’m not aware of a single family that has ever been adequately compensated for their loved one’s chemotherapy manslaughter.
