How Do Medication Errors Happen?

When doctors, nurses, and pharmacists fail to follow the proper procedures for prescribing and administering medications, the patient is the one who suffers the consequences. Sadly, medication errors will often result in serious, life-threatening, or even fatal side effects.

Some of the most common medication mistakes include:

  • A doctor or nurse administers the wrong type of medication
  • A doctor or nurse administers an improper dose of medication
  • A doctor prescribes a medication that the patient is allergic to
  • A pharmacist mixes up one patient’s prescription with another’s
  • A doctor or nurse administers medication to the wrong patient
  • A doctor fails to address adverse side effects from a medication
  • A doctor prescribes a dangerous combination of medications

If you were given the wrong type or incorrect dose of medication or if your doctor failed to prescribe needed medication, you may have grounds to file a medical malpractice claim. We can help you seek compensation for your medical bills, lost income, and pain and suffering.
