Medication Errors

Common errors occur in the writing or reading of prescriptions, whether it involves prescribing the wrong medication or dosage. Every year, people die as a result of wrong medication administration or overdose.

Wrong medication negligence can be the result of a number of mistakes, including those made in the following scenarios:

  • Wrong medication given when miscommunicated orders by poor handwriting, confusion of unit of measurements, drugs with similar names, or misused abbreviations.
  • Wrong medication given due to wrong label, inaccurate labeling, or inappropriate label.
  • The wrong medication may be prescribed when the physician fails to consider recent warnings about the medication.

These and other medical errors can result in dangerous or even grave injuries.
