Patients put at risk after hospital bought fake Viagra

Children may have been put at risk after a major hospital accidentally bought fake Viagra to treat pulmonary arterial hypertension, a tribunal has heard.

The tribunal found that a wholesaler called Hillmear had sold the drugs even though the company's director should have suspected they were counterfeit.

The Sydney Children’s Hospital, Randwick, bought the counterfeit drugs in 2010 from one of Australia’s largest wholesalers.

The wholesaler had in turn bought it from Hillmear, which had bought it from an unlicensed seller.
