Common Medication Errors
Medical professionals have a duty to ensure the safety and health of their patients. Doctors, nurses and pharmacists are responsible for the lives of their patients and must act within accepted standards of care established by the medical community. Unfortunately, this does not always happen.
Common medication errors include:
- Prescribing the wrong dosage
- Improperly prescribing a medication
- Inadequate screening for patient risk factors
- Failing to take into account a drug’s side effects or interactions with other medications
- Neglecting a patient’s allergic reactions to a medication
- Hospital staff errors
- Administering a dose at the wrong time or missing a scheduled dose
- Prescribing a medication to the wrong patient
Medication mistakes are serious. Any instance of negligence can jeopardize the well-being of a patient or deprive him or her of a necessary drug.
