Types of Medication Errors

There are several primary types of medication errors:

  • Prescribing or administering the wrong medication
  • Administering the wrong dose of a medication
  • Prescribing a medication that reacts adversely to another medication
  • Prescribing or administering a medication to which the patient has a known allergy

Why Medication Errors Occur

Medication errors may occur if a pharmacist misreads a doctor’s handwriting on a written prescription slip, if a nurse accidentally picks up the wrong medication off the shelf, or if a doctor fails to review a patient’s medical history when prescribing a medication.

When medication errors stem from negligence, which is a failure to provide proper care in the circumstances, the at-fault doctor or other healthcare professional may be held accountable. These are highly complex cases, and they often involve technical issues related to the medication involved and what a “standard of care” may be in the specific circumstances at hand. With our medical and legal experience, we can build compelling cases even against these odds. We are driven to secure the best results for our clients.
