Fresno Prescription Error Attorneys
Our healthcare system is increasingly dependent on treatment from prescription drugs. These pharmaceuticals can be incredibly beneficial for anything from treating infections to managing pain symptoms. This increase in both the demand and supply of prescription medications has increased the likelihood of prescription errors. Unfortunately, these prescription errors often result in serious injury, illness, and even death. Prescription errors are one of the most common causes of medical malpractice, and it is estimated that every year 7,000 people lose their lives due to prescription errors. Common prescription errors include:
- Administration of the wrong medication
- Administration of the wrong dosage of medicine
- Administration of a drug of which the patient is known to be allergic
- Administration of a drug that reacts violently with another medication the patient already takes
- Incorrect labeling or instructions on a prescription medication
Prescription errors can occur in pharmacies, hospitals, doctor's offices, and at home and unfortunately it's often difficult to know the mistake has been made until the prescription error causes serious injury, or even death.
