New Hampshire Medical Malpractice Lawyer

Prescription Errors

Medication errors are one of the most common forms of medical negligence and malpractice. Most often these cases occur when a doctor prescribes the wrong dosage amount or the wrong medicine. This may also occur when a medication is prescribed that reacts harmfully with another medication the patient is on, or if the patient is prescribed a medicine to which he or she has a known allergy. A medication error may occur due to illegible handwriting on a prescription slip, an error by a doctor in deciding which medicine to prescribe, pharmacy personnel filling the bottle with the wrong medicine, or a nurse administering the wrong drug or the right drug in the wrong dosage amount.

The consequences of prescription drug malpractice may range from minor side effects such as a headache to serious injuries or illness and even death. When pharmacists act negligently or fail to follow standard precautionary procedures, their behavior can result in dangerous drug interactions or severe allergic reactions. The victims often require medical treatment in order to properly recover, which leads to financial stress and missed wages.
