The dosage error was made by Janelle Banks, who was a high school student at the time and working as a pharmacy technician at Walgreens. When questioned under oath in the lawsuit brought by the Hippleys against Walgreens, Janelle admitted her error. As for the Walgreens pharmacist, who was supposed to double-check all prescriptions according to the store's quality control system, she was unaware of the error until called to testify. She has since been promoted. (ABC News)
