My mother has a codeine allergy and she was prescribed

My mother has a codeine allergy and she was prescribed Lortab after a dental procedure. I understand this med is a form of codeine, in the same family.
my mom took 1/2 tablet, had an allergic reaction, and died in the ambulance on the way to ER
I do not think her doctor should have given her this pain med, but something with no codeine in it.
