Medication errors can occur in hospitals, urgent care facilities, private doctors’ offices, and pharmacies. Sometimes, these errors can be due to something as simple as two medications look alike. A pharmacist may incorrectly read the prescription order. A nurse my distribute an incorrect amount or with another medicine that can be contraindicated.
I have handled many medical malpractice cases, including medication errors. I have learned that many of these mistakes could have been prevented if proper procedures were in place and followed. If your medical care provider has mixed up your medications and you decide to report it, you could help save the life of someone else. It’s important for your family to get justice, and it’s important for your medical care provider to face the consequences for their error.
Medication mix-ups can have a tragic impact on one’s health. A patient may not have received important medication, or they are given the wrong medication which can cause serious side effects, or interactions with the other medication the patient takes. Children and the elderly are the most susceptible to severe health repercussions from medication mix-ups. An elderly loved one might experience medication mix-up at a busy nursing home, just as your child might receive mixed up medications from a busy ER or urgent care facility.
