This is especially true when you know that your medical condition has been overlooked and you are not receiving the correct form of treatment. Our personal injury team can help you fight back and regain what was lost to you.
The Consequences of Medication Errors
There is a rigid procedure that all doctors, pharmacists, and medical staff must abide by. Doctors must thoroughly evaluate the patient before prescribing any form of medication or course of treatment. Despite this, doctors can still make mistakes.
Some examples of drug errors include:
- The wrong drug is given
- The incorrect dosage is prescribed
- The patient is allergic to one or more ingredients
- The patient is given a combination of drugs that negatively affects them
- The patient was given the wrong directions for taking the medication
Sometimes, a drug error can happen for a relatively minor reason, such as a doctor’s poor or illegible handwriting when issuing the prescription. There may be cases, as well, where the doctor was clearly negligent—due to lack of training, lack of knowledge in handling the situation, or because they ignored the patient’s problem altogether.
