What Is A Medication Error?

Medication errors can have deadly results. Modern medicine relies heavily on prescription drugs to help a patient manage their pain and other symptoms, prevent infection, or prepare a patient for a medical procedure such as surgery. When these drugs are administered and monitored properly they can greatly enhance a patient's comfort and survival. But when a doctor, anesthesiologist, nurse, pharmacist, or other medical professional is negligent in prescribing, administering, or monitoring these medications the consequences can be tragic. Common medication errors include:

  • Administering the wrong medication
  • Administering the wrong dosage of a medication
  • Administering a medication to which the patient has a known allergy
  • Administering a medication that will react violently to a medication the patient has already taken or been prescribed

It's also possible a drug company can be held liable for certain medication errors if it is found that they are negligent in issuing proper warning labels or instructions, or if their drugs are found to be dangerous or defective.
