Mary Ann Wagner, the senior vice president of the National Association of Chain Drug Stores, a Washington, D.C. trade group, spoke to "20/20" on behalf of the drug store chains. While Wagner maintained "there's a tremendous amount of concern" about pharmacy errors in the industry, she admitted, "We don't keep track of them." As for the big chains, she says they are spending huge sums in new training and high-tech programs designed to prevent errors in the billions of prescriptions filled each year. (ABC News)
