Pharmacist Alleges She Suffered Eye Injury from Drug Vapor

Jarod Cassidy6 years ago

A pharmacist in San Francisco, California alleges she suffered painful injuries to her face and eyes while unpacking a box of trial drugs.

About the Drug Vapor Lawsuit

  • According to the University Herald, Cynthia Wong was working as a clinical pharmacist at California pacific Medical Center in 2011 when she claims that a box of drugs, containing vials of sodium chlorite, emitted a vapor.
  • Wong alleges that the chemical vapor resulted in serious injuries to her face and eyes, including corneal abrasions, which continue to affect her vision three years later.

Pharmacist Sues over Eye Injuries

  • In a lawsuit filed against a University of Iowa pharmaceutical lab, Wong seeks unspecified damages, claiming that the injuries have resulted in medical expenses and lost wages.
  • The lawsuit also accuses the pharmacy of not including instructions or warning of possible injuries on their product to aid her in making an informed decision whether it was safe to unpack the box.
  • The University of Iowa pharmacy has already accumulated $27,000 in legal fees, and a California judge recently denied a request by the pharmacy to dismiss the claim.
