Family to sue pharmacy following death of woman given the wrong medication

An inquest has heard that a 62 year old Bristol woman died after she was given the wrong medication by a pharmacy in the city.

The grandmother had a regular prescription for pills to treat crohn’s disease but a locum pharmacist mistakenly gave her tablets which were commonly used to treat diabetes.

Rushed to hospital after being found slumped unconscious on her sofa by her son with a packet of the pills next to her, the inquest found that the diabetes tablets had lowered her blood sugar to a dangerous level inducing a coma and she died one month later.
