Can doctors do this?

My mom went to urgent care for a lung problem and they gave her a medication that they should have known she'd be allergic to. Can they do this and get away with it? Something similar happened to me at Loma Linda, except thank God, I didn't have a reaction. Still... how can doctors DO this?!

    Doctors do this because they don't care and they don't pay attention. This actually went thru three people to reach your mother. The doctor should have noticed, but when they didn't, the nurse should have noticed, when they didn't the pharmacist that filled the request in the hospital should have noted it on the write-up from the patient's chart. Health care sucks nowadays, you HAVE to watch out for yourself and ask ask ask. What are you giving me? What is it going to do for me? to me? If the person isn't able, they need to have an advocate for them as these questions! ASK. Doctors are in no way gods. They may think they are but they are, for the most part, overworked and uncaring. Take care and be careful. Research and question.
