Examples Of Common Medication Errors
Medication errors come in all shapes and sizes. Here are just a few examples of potential mistakes that may entitle you to take legal action:
- A physician prescribes the wrong medication, one that will interact harmfully with the other drugs you are taking or one to which you have a serious allergy
- A nurse administers the wrong dose, gives you the right dose at the wrong time or overdoses you
- A hospital pharmacy reads the prescription incorrectly or dispenses a medication to the wrong person
Such medication errors often occur when hospital staff fails to read a patient’s allergy information, confuse drugs with similar names or is distracted and overworked.
