The Dangers of Medication Errors

Medication errors can be the result of negligence on the part of nurses, doctors, pharmacists and other medical professionals. Common examples of medication errors include:

  • Giving the wrong medication
  • Giving the wrong dosage
  • Failure to monitor patients after administering medicine
  • Failure to account for harmful interactions with other drugs
  • Failure to account for harmful interactions with food

Patients do not necessarily react the same way to medications. Doctors must take into account a patient’s medical history, allergies and other factors when prescribing and administering medication.

Many medication errors could be avoided with proper training, communication and standardized medical procedures in place. When hospitals and medical professionals do not make the effort to ensure the proper use of medicine, they can be held accountable for the injuries their patients suffer.

Our attorneys have a proven record of success obtaining results for victims of medication errors and other forms of medical negligence.
