Often, people taking prescriptions are not just taking one. When multiple prescriptions are being administered to the same person, it is extremely important for the doctors to be vigilant about ensuring there won’t be any bad drug interactions. Some drugs can have tragic consequences when they are mixed, and it’s important for patients to be given the right drugs if they’re staying in a hospital or nursing home. If you or someone you know has experienced problems with medication errors, you have rights—you aren’t just resigned to accepting the mistake and moving on. The responsible should be held liable for the medication errors.

Potential Problems with Medication Errors

Medication errors make up nearly one fourth of all medical malpractice cases, due to the high potential of occurrence. Medication errors can mean not getting a dose at all, being given the wrong medication, being given too much or too little medication, of missing a dose and being given medication too late. While nurses are typically the ones administering medication, pharmacists, doctors, technicians, and really any other health care worker who dispenses drugs may be held responsible depending on what the case is. Problems that can arise with medication errors include becoming ill, symptoms worsening, and even death.


What to Do About Errors Within Medical Facilities

If you or someone you love has experienced problems stemming from a medication error, you do have the chance to fight for compensation. The first step is to contact a medical malpractice lawyer who has experience with cases like yours. Compile all of the medical information regarding what happened with the error, such as what medication was given to you, when, how much, etc., as well as the names of all the medical professionals who were caring for you when you experienced the error. Together, you and the attorney can sort through details and figure out the best way to fight the case.
