Ten people in Oklahoma were hospitalized after they were injected with insulin instead of a flu shot, police confirmed to CNN. Emergency responders were dispatched Wednesday to the Jacquelyn House, an intermediate care facility for individuals with intellectual disabilities.
A local pharmacist gave the shots to eight facility residents and two staff members. Bartlesville Police Chief Tracy Roles said, “All received injections of what we believe to be insulin. As of (Wednesday evening) it appears all patients are medically stable.”
According to the investigation, the incident appears to be accidental. However, detectives will continue to investigate.
