Many Miami residents take their prescribed medication without much thought as to what they are ingesting. This trust in doctors and nurses derives from society's expectation that medical professionals are properly trained to diagnose conditions and treat them accordingly. Unfortunately, this ideal is not reality. Medication errors happen all too often, and the results can be fatal.
