Michael Jackson: Your Justice is Served!

Source: CNN Report (Truncated to show Medical details): 

Dr. Conrad Murray was found guilty Monday of involuntary manslaughter in the death of Michael Jackson.

Murray served as Jackson’s personal physician as Jackson prepared for his comeback concerts, with Murray giving him the surgical anesthetic propofol to help him sleep nearly every night for the last two months of his life, according to testimony.

Jackson’s death on June 25, 2009, was caused by “acute propofol intoxication” in combination with two sedatives, the Los Angeles County coroner ruled.

Lesson Learned: This trial shows the importance of properly dispensing medications to effectively advocate for drug safety in our community. Abiding to policy/laws can really save lives. Essentially, it is the ultimate goal of health professionals to save the life of a human being. Like Judge Pastor stated during the verdict: “This is not a crime involving a mistake of judgment. … This was a crime where the end result was the death of a human being.”  

Know your Medicine, Know your Pharmacy.
