Pharmacists have an opportunity to find out what the penalties are in Ohio for making a mistake during a medication study. An Ohio based company is administering the study, and they’re looking for volunteers. Pharmacists must sign a contract to take part. The terms require participating pharmacists to appear in Ohio courts for legal actions related to the contract, where any dispute shall be governed by the laws of that state. Some pharmacists have declined taking part in a study binding them professionally to a state that criminalized medication errors. As predicted, the felony conviction of Eric Cropp has implications beyond state borders.
