On December 13, 2005, Keith Scofield visited a Wal-Mart pharmacy in Frederick, Maryland, and ordered over-the-counter Humulin R (u-100). Instead, he was allegedly given Humulin R (u-500), a prescription drug that contains five times the insulin of the requested medication.
He injected the insulin on December 20, 2005, lapsed into a diabetic coma, and died on January 2, 2006, according to a lawsuit filed by his family.
The suit was settled during mediation without admission of liability or fault.
