10 hospitalized after insulin administered instead of flu shots

10 hospitalized after insulin administered instead of flu shots”

Several folks at a team dwelling in Oklahoma were being taken to the hospital Wednesday evening following getting insulin instead of a flu shot, the Bartlesville Law enforcement and Hearth Section informed KJRH.

Police in Bartlesville, Oklahoma, say they got a call Wednesday night about one unresponsive person, but when they arrived on the scene that wasn't the case.

Eight residents and two employees at Jacquelyn House, which serves people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, were affected, according to Sgt. Jim Warring of the local police department, who spoke to CNN.

Warring said that the incapacitated patients "were not able to explain the issues", adding that "many of them are not vocal and not able to walk". All the people who were hospitalized were symptomatic, lying on the ground and needing immediate help, however, they were not able to communicate what kind of assistance would make the situation better. The officials of Jane Phillips Hospitals said that all patients were treated and will soon be discharged. "That's why I highly praise the fire and EMS staff for doing an exceptional job identifying the problem".

Roles says the facility had contracted with an experienced pharmacist to administer the influenza vaccine, but all received injections of what's believed to be insulin instead.

Ingram didn't discuss whether the residents and employees were injected insulin but said authorities were investigating the "cause of the reactions to the injections".

"I've never seen where there's been some sort of medical misadventure to this magnitude", Roles said. "Not to downplay where we are, but thinking of where we could be, it certainly could have been very tragic". The Director of communications for the Oklahoma State Department of Health, Tony D. Sellars reportedly said that his department is also reviewing the facility's report on the incident.

An investigation was still underway on Thursday.
