While I don't know for sure, I would say that somehow, again I am not sure how that script was put in under your ss # by error. Could be the real patient said they didn't get it and the pharmacy figured it out and told the person to call you and get it back.

I'm sure if you made any inquiry on getting this medication, someone who the information got to was on the ball and knew their was a possible malpractive issue, since a Dr who has never seen you cannot by any standard of medical practive, prescribe you any medication that needs a perscription.

They are only covering their asses at this point, I might still however, send in a complaint to the AMA or Pharmacy Board listing this Dr by name for his mess up.

Well due to the massive errors and negligence at this facility that have yet to be addressed,they have not so this only adds to there demise. But the correct agencies are not addressing the issue they are attempting to make it go away.

McAfee,

This is by definition, what's referred to in the Medical Profession as a Medical Error.

Medical Errors kill more people in the United States every year than guns do.

This should be reported to the Medical Director and Chief of Staff.

Problem is reporting this to anyone within the VA is a waste of time. Someone on here pointed me towards the Joint Commission to report problems to.

Might want to report this to everyone at once...I think with the way things have been going within the VA lately it's time to saturate the higher reporting agencies with everything.

But that's just me.......If you do return that script....take a pic of that bottle first; otherwise the VA will deny it ever happened.

  • question-001.jpegLooking for Answers? Here are tips for finding the answers you seek.

     

    All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. To post, you must register. Registration is free. You can register for a free account here.

     

    You can read the forums without registering.

     

    Tips on posting on the forums.
     

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery” instead of ‘I have a question.
    2. Knowledgeable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title. I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one massive, rambling introduction or story. Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph, there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.

     

    Leading to:

     

    Post straightforward questions and then post background information.

     

    Examples:
     
    • A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    • I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
       
    • B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
        • I was involved in a traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?

     

    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial from your claim?” etc.

     

    Note:

     

    • Your first posts on the board may be delayed before they appear as they are reviewed.
    • This process does not take long.
    • Your first posts on the board may be delayed before they appear as they are reviewed. The review requirement will usually be removed by the 6th post. However, we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.
    • This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before hitting the board. We want to keep the focus on VA Claims, and this helps us do that.
