Types of Medication Errors
Prescription mistakes are one of the most common medical malpractice errors which occur in hospitals throughout the United States, with more than one and a half million incidents reported annually. These errors are not just limited to overdosing patients on their prescribed medications. Such mistakes also happen in the administration of the wrong medication, the failure to provide the appropriate dosage of the ordered medication in a timely fashion, the inadequate calculation of the prescribed medication, or the failure to read the patient’s medical history to check for allergies toward certain medications.
Fortunately, most prescription mistakes do not have any long-term effects to the patient. However, it may also result in immediate injury and death.
