Types of Pharmacy Errors
Regrettably, pharmacy errors occur every day leaving distraught victims to pay the price for a pharmacist’s carelessness. Pharmacists might be tired and distracted after working long hours, but they are still responsible for providing customers with the right medication.
Unfortunately, all too often errors such as these, among others, occur:
- Wrong medication. If a pharmacist misreads a prescription, a medication label or a patient’s name, he or she could give a patient the wrong medication. The consequences of such a mistake can, in many cases, cause serious injury to a patient.
- Wrong dosage. When a a pharmacist doesn’t pay close attention to a doctor’s prescription, he or she may carelessly give a customer the wrong dosage of a medication. Receiving either too little or too much of a drug can cause a person to sustain devastating injury
- Wrong instructions or warning label. Instructions and warning labels are given with medications to promote drug efficacy and safety. If a pharmacist neglects to provide the instructions and warnings that are supposed to accompany a dispensed medication, a patient may suffer major harm by virtue of not knowing about potential adverse reactions, among other serious risks of which the patient ought to be made aware.
- Drug interactions. If a patient takes several different prescriptions you’re a pharmacist should be on the lookout for potentially harmful drug interactions. Under certain circumstances, if a pharmacist fails to exercise the proper degree of vigilance, a patient could be given drugs that are contraindicated or harmful when taken together.
These pharmacy errors can cause harmful or even life-threatening side effects that require serious medical attention. If you or a family member has been affected by a pharmacy error, please get the medical treatment and legal help you need.
