Medication Error

Over-the-counter drugs have become such a standard part of modern life that we often forget that they pose a serious threat to the health of anyone who uses them in an improper manner. Each and every medication that is available for purchase in the local drugstore is accompanied by a label that is full of warnings that should serve as a reminder. The chemicals present in OTC drugs are weak, however, compared to those that are found in prescription medications. Errors in the prescription or administration of these potent medicines can have devastating health effects.

If you have been sickened due to the failure of a physician, pharmacist or nurse to properly direct your pharmaceutical treatment, then you may be entitled to financial compensation.

Common Medication Errors

Medication errors are simply inexcusable because they are entirely preventable in nearly all cases. When the health and very life of a patient depend upon the correct administration of pharmaceutical drugs, the stakes are too high for carelessness on the part of medical professionals to be tolerated. Common medication errors include:

  • Confusion of similar drug names
  • Illegible prescriptions
  • Administration of improper dosage
  • Failure to observe potential drug interactions
  • Administration of wrong medication
