Medication Errors

Did you become ill from prescribed medication?

Health care professionals have a responsibility for ensuring their patients receive proper care and treatment. When medication errors occur, it can lead to serious illnesses and injuries such as liver failure, kidney failure, heart attack and even death. Types of medication mistakes include:

  • Medication overdose or under dose
  • Wrong medication
  • Harmful side effects
  • Drug interaction
  • Allergic reactions

Medication errors can be the result of a pharmacist incorrectly preparing and labeling the medication, a doctor prescribing the wrong medication or a nurse that doesn't administer it properly. Drug companies can also manufacturer dangerous and defective products that cause harm.
