  • Oklahoma group home residents taken to hospital after being given insulin instead of flu shots

At least 10 people were hospitalized in Oklahoma on the night on November 6 after reportedly being injected with insulin instead of flu shots. The facility serves intellectually and developmentally disabled people, according to the website of AbilityWorks, the company that owns the eight-resident site.

EMS and fire crews responding Wednesday afternoon "found ... multiple unresponsive people", police Chief Tracy Roles said during a news conference covered by CNN affiliate KTUL.

Police say that most of the patients could not speak or could not walk, making it hard for EMS staff to identify what had gone wrong.

The shots were administered by a pharmacist who has been in practice for 40 years, police said, KOTV reports. "I can't say enough about how good of a job the fire department and the EMS staff did containing the situation, controlling the situation, and doing what they needed to do to put the patients in the best possible position for recovery".

"This situation could've been a lot worse, could've been a lot worse", said Bartlesville, Oklahoma, Police Sergeant Jim Warren.

"I've in no way noticed the place there's been some form of healthcare misadventure to this magnitude", Roles mentioned to KTUL.

Authorities said they believe the pharmacist administering the shots mixed up a vial of flu vaccine with a vial of insulin and administered the insulin instead. "Not to downplay where we are, but thinking of where we could be, it certainly could have been very tragic". But, officials said the patients will have to stay in the hospital for a few days.

Oklahoma State Department of Health communications director Tony D. Sellars says his department is reviewing the facility's report on the incident.
