Question Details:Can I sue them for negligence or privacy violation. My concern is that today we are seeing more and more crimes over prescription medication. My prescription is a controlled substance and my concern is that now a total stranger knows what medication I have and where I live. I have children that I worry about and this person could have seen them with me as I dropped off the prescription and then shopped for groceries. They announced my name over the loud speaker and then gave it to someone without ID. Can I file a lawsuit against them?
What you have written about is an internal issue with the pharmacy that you go to and its failure to pay attention to detail resulting the problem that you have written about.
You should have a face to face meeting with the owner of the pharmacy to express your concerns over what transpired in order to prevent the problem from arising again.
One option is to make a complaint with the entity that oversees on a statewide basis the regulations of licensed pharmacies in your state.
Filing a lawsuit based upon the facts that you have written would cost more money than any monetary return that I see for you.
