Getting that science right is the responsibility of the healthcare providers and not the patients. Pharmacists, doctors, nurses, and other care professionals are charged with the responsibility of ensuring that medications are appropriately prescribed, distributed, and administered.

Unfortunately, the proper care often falls through the cracks. Medication errors are frighteningly common in Illinois and throughout the United States. In fact, they account for one out of every four medical malpractice cases.
