Medication Errors Cause Serious Injury And Death
Medication has always been a central piece of the doctor’s tool kit. As the modern pharmaceutical industry continues to expand and develop more and more drugs to treat an ever widening array of illnesses, more people are finding their health depending on the proper prescription and administration of medications.
This means that many of us are at risk of being injured should there be a mistake at any point regarding the drugs we rely on. Some of the common issues that can harm a person include:
- Physician errors — A doctor may prescribe the wrong dose or the wrong medication. This can leave a patient overdosed or without the care the medication was supposed to provide.
- Pharmacy errors — A pharmacy may dispense the wrong medication. It can also dispense too much, leading to an overdose. Pharmacists have a responsibility to ensure the safety of their customers that includes correctly dispensing prescriptions and taking steps to ensure their customers understand the drugs they are taking.
Medication errors can cause serious injury and death. If you have been harmed by a medication error, you deserve to be fully compensated for the injuries you suffered.
