my computer has a twisted sense of humor

yesterday, i sent a script electronically for amoxicillin for a patient with strep throat.  a few hours later a got a call from the pharmacist because the script he received was for hemorrhoid cream, not amoxicillin as intended (i am not making this up!).  i have no idea how that happened but at least it was an obvious error.  a more subtle one may have gone unnoticed and that is scary to think about. okay, now this post isn't funny anymore.
