Startling report on medicine mix-ups

A new study finds mix-ups, accidental overdoses and bad drug reactions are doing harm to about one of every 15 hospitalized children.

Concerns were heightened last year by the accidental drug overdose of actor Dennis Quaid's newborn twins

The study will be released Monday in the April issue of the journal Pediatrics.
