Computer System in Pharmacies Often Unsafe

Gerrit van der Wal, Inspector-General of the Health Care Inspectorate, has stated that the computer systems of pharmacies are unreliable. There is thus a chance that patients could receive medicines which should not be taken together, or medications to which they might be allergic. Van der Wal said that the pharmacies are wrong in thinking that their systems are safe, as this is often not the case.
