Types of Pharmacy Mistakes
Pharmacists undergo years of education and training in order to be permitted to dispense medicine. Sadly, though, this does not always prevent them from making mistakes. Common types of pharmaceutical errors include:
- Drug side effects
- Incorrect labeling
- Incorrect dosage
- Incorrect prescription
- Drug interactions and complications
How Medication Errors Happen
There are a number of potential causes of medication errors. Pharmacists may blame long hours for making them tired and unaware of mistakes. Additionally, illegible writing on the part of physicians can result in a pharmacist dispensing the wrong medication to patient. Lastly, the pharmacy itself may receive bad drugs from the pharmaceutical company.
Pharmacy errors can make you worse off than you were before and can mislead doctors who are trying to treat you.
