Medication errors could result from:

  • Order communication
  • Product labeling
  • Compounding
  • Distributing
  • Administering
  • Educating
  • Monitoring
  • Prescribing

Medication and prescription errors are serious and can result in not only life-long injuries to the victim, but even death. They can occur at any stage of the process—from selection, prescription, dispensing, or administration.

For example, a doctor or a pharmacist may have:

  • Improperly labeled the drug
  • Administered the wrong drug to a patient
  • Prescribed the wrong drug or dosage
  • Miscommunicated with the doctor or pharmacist
  • Failed to protect a patient from drug allergies
  • Failed to provide a drug consultation
  • Failed to know bad interactions with other drugs
