A lawsuit was filed in Wayne County, Michigan Circuit Court against a pharmacy accused of dispensing the wrong dose of medicine, which the suit says caused the death of a Troy man.
According to the suit, filed last week, 54-year-old John Sheridan was prescribed the drug Temodar as part of his cancer treatment in September 2007. The prescription was written incorrectly, the suit alleges, prescribing Sheridan nearly 10 times the correct dose. A Rite Aid pharmacy in Troy dispensed the prescription to Sheridan, according to the suit.
Sheridan died the next month.
Sheridan’s family entered into a confidential settlement with his oncologist.
Detroit attorney Brian McKeen of McKeen and Associates represents Sheridan’s family. In a statement, he said Rite Aid pharmacists should have recognized the error and contacted Sheridan’s oncologist for a correction.
