Medication Errors Are Preventable

If your doctor acts accordingly and adheres to the accepted standard of care, negligence should not happen. Still, with so many numbers of people who suffer due the devastating effects of medication errors, it begs the question as to why such a preventable incident even occurs. It could be something as simple as a doctor’s illegible handwriting or naming the wrong medication in the prescription.

These are some of the most common types of medication errors:

  • Wrong type of medication
  • Incorrect dosage was given
  • The directions on the medication was incorrect
  • Doctor misinterpreted test results
  • Doctor failed to properly review patient’s medical history
  • Medication had confusing or misleading packaging
