$200 for Providing Wrong Medication

$200 for providing wrong medication

On October 19, 1999, James Rollins reported to the WCC pill line to obtain his daily medication. Approximately 20 minutes after receiving a pill from Nurse Norris, Mr. Rollins fell unconscious to the floor. WCC medical staff later determined that Ms. Norris had given him the wrong medication.

Mr. Rollins filed a tort claim with the Division of Risk Management, which was settled for $200. Mr. Rollins was not represented by counsel. See: Matter of Rollins, Tort Claim No. 31050581 (April 19, 2000).
