Postal Service apologizes after medicine delivered to wrong address

The U.S. Postal Service is apologizing to a family in Saint Augustine after a neighbor found prescription medication delivered to the wrong address.

“There are all kinds of issues that seniors have with their medication — their life depends on it,” said Sandy Hinrichs, who lives in the Cascades at World Golf Village.

She alerted First Coast News when she saw a mail carrier deliver prescription medication to her neighbors after they’d asked their mail to be forwarded to New Hampshire, where they were spending a few months.

“This is not a game,” Hinrichs said. “This is the U.S. Postal Service, and you’ve got to be responsible.”

After First Coast News told the postal service it was investigating, a spokesperson issued an apology.

    The easiest and most reliable solution to this would be to contact whomever ships your medicine and change the delivery address directly to where it needs to go. This will get you your medicine quicker than a forward sometimes as much as a week faster.
