UPDATE: Wright-Patt Recalls Prescriptions from Kittyhawk Pharmacy; 7 Errors Found So Far

UPDATE:  Wright Patterson Air Force Base officials confirmed Friday that seven prescriptions were filled erroneously.  All seven were refills for muscle relaxers that mistakenly had several Tylenol pills included in the bottle.  WPAFB officials say no one ingested the wrong medication.

The prescription errors occurred during the automated process at the Kitty Hawk Pharmacy.  If you think you may have been affected, you can call the pharmacy hotline at 937-257-9022.

***********************************************************

WPAFB -- Base officials say they've been able to check 250 of the 7,000 refills at risk after a robot dispenser at the Kittyhawk Satellite Pharmacy may have malfunctioned.

The good news is that no errors have been found so far.

More than 6,000 more prescriptions still need to be checked.

WRIGHT-PATTERSON AIR FORCE BASE -- If you've recently had prescriptions filled at the Kittyhawk Satellite Pharmacy, you may have received the wrong medication.

Col. Cassie Barlow, commander of Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, says that only refills of prescriptions filled at the Kittyhawk pharmacy has been compromised. That encompasses as many as 7,000 customers, although Barlow says the number of prescriptions actually affected is much smaller.

Barlow said the pharmacy's robot that fills the prescriptions experienced technical difficulties.

Barlow says a patient called the pharmacy, saying the wrong pill was in her bottle. That prompted the investigation.

Base officials will call everyone whose prescriptions could be involved.

A news release was sent out Tuesday night by a base official, who advises:

Out of an abundance of caution, we are notifying patients who had prescriptions filled at the Kittyhawk Satellite Pharmacy between April 23, 2014, and April 29, 2014.  These patients may have received wrong medication or a mixture of medications.
 
On April 29 we discovered technical difficulties which may have impacted the accuracy with which some of the prescriptions were filled.
 
We are asking all patients who had prescriptions filled during this time to bring their prescriptions to the Wright-Patt Medical Center Information Desk located near the main entrance between 6:30 a.m. and 7 p.m., so that we may check them for accuracy and exchange them, as necessary.
 
This concern only impacts those prescriptions that were filled at our Kittyhawk Satellite Pharmacy between April 23 and April 29, 2014.
 
If you have any  questions or concerns, the 88th Medical Group commander has set up a phone line staffed with pharmacy personnel to assist you.  That number is 937-257-9022.  This line is also manned between 6:30 a.m. and 7 p.m.
