What Qualifies as Prescription Drug Error?
Essentially whenever a patient goes to a doctor, they expect to get the help they need from a competent health care provider. If a physician fails to provide a certain duty of care, they may be held liable for medical malpractice.
When it comes to medication errors, the most common ways this form of negligence can occur include:
- Mislabeling a medication
- Failure to provide common side effects of a prescription drug to the patient
- Giving the patient the wrong medication
- Administering either too much or too little medication to the patient
- Giving a patient a medication that they are allergic to, with prior knowledge of this allergy
- Giving them a prescription that interferes with other known medications they are taking
This form of negligence is not just limited to doctors; it can include anyone who may have had their hands on a prescription drug before it reached the patient. This includes nurses, the hospital, pharmacists, and the pharmaceutical company.
