How Medication Errors Occur

The medicine industry is heavily regulated. Pharmacists, doctors, nurses, and others must exercise caution when prescribing, administering, and filling prescription medication. Unfortunately, even the slightest lapse in judgment, distraction, inattention, and mistake can have severe consequences for patients. Common errors include failing to review patients’ current medications and medical history, prescribing dangerous drug combinations, and mistakes in dosage and strength of drugs.

Medication Error Liability

Depending on the facts and circumstances of your case, one or more people and entities may be responsible for your injuries. Doctors and nurses can be liable for prescribing an incorrect dosage, a medicine that is dangerous due to existing health conditions, or medicine that will have a dangerous reaction when combined with other medications you are on. Pharmacist liability can be caused by failing to go over medication instructions, giving you incorrect instructions, and filling your prescription with the incorrect strength or medicine. Medical entities can also be responsible for their employees’ negligence.
