Severe injury to a child from improper medication while hospitalized.

How do medication errors happen in a hospital? These are an example of what the medical community - hospitals, HMOs, healthcare insurance companies, doctors - call "never events."  They should never happen.

This D.C. medical malpractice case, settled for a confidential amount, involved a child being given the wrong medication because the hospital did not have a system, or the nurse didn't follow it, to make sure kids are given the right medications.
