BARTLESVILLE, Okla. — Ten people at an Oklahoma group home who received insulin shots instead of the flu vaccine were hospitalized Wednesday in what authorities are calling a “medical misadventure,” multiple news outlets reported.
"I've never seen where there's been some sort of medical misadventure to this magnitude," Bartlesville Police Chief Tracy Roles said during a news conference.
According to CBS News, a veteran pharmacist in practice for 40 years administered the shots and is cooperating fully with authorities.
“I'm so hopeful that means that this was just a terrible accident. The bigger hope is that all of the patients who are at the hospital make a full recovery,” Roles said.
