Avoiding Contaminated Medications
Our firm has sued the companies involved in selling contaminated drugs to physicians in Indiana, who in turn injected those contaminated drugs into their patients, leading those patients to develop meningitis. Our early investigation has revealed that the contaminated drugs were sold at discount, and that there were many reasons to suspect a lack of required quality controls in place to ensure FDA safety regulation compliance on the part of those selling the contaminated medications. As we further investigate this matter we will share any public health tips that we learn. Our best advice for the present is that whenever receiving an injection at a physician office or other medical facility it is important to ask for proof that the medication about to be administered was supplied by a reputable company with a long track record of meeting stringent FDA standards.
