Medication Mistakes in Healthcare

Medication errors can occur in hospitals, doctors’ offices, and urgent care facilities where medical professionals may be subject to emergencies, high stress, and a hectic pace. As a result, miscommunications and mistakes can occur. In hospitals, medications can be wrongly administered such as through a wrong route, for a wrong duration, as well as wrong dose. Many medications have similar names making it easy to dispense or prescribe incorrectly.

Medical professionals may be considered negligent if they:

  • Prescribe or give a patient the wrong dosage
  • Prescribe or give a patient an unintended medication
  • Fail to obtain a patient’s medical history regarding prescription drug use
  • Fail to warn a patient of all risks and side effects associated with a prescribed medication
  • Prescribe or give a patient a dangerous mix of various prescription drugs

According to the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI), 7,000 to 9,000 individuals die every year due to medication errors. Hundreds of thousands of others experience adverse drug reactions or other complications. This leads to psychological, physical, and financial repercussions for patients who must be treated to repair or reverse the harm done, adding to their stress, loss of wages or income, co-pays for treatment, and other damages.
