Pharmaceutical Errors

Although pharmacies have a system of checking and verifying prescriptions to prevent errors, mistakes still occur. According to The National Academies of Sciences Engineering and Medicine, pharmaceutical errors injure 1.5 million people each year. It is important for those taking prescription medications to inquire about any concerns they may have immediately. Pharmaceutical errors can lead to serious injuries or illnesses, especially because many people rely on daily prescription medications for serious health conditions, and going without or substituting a vital medication can be fatal.

Some of the most common pharmaceutical errors include, but are not limited to:

  • Mislabeling products
  • Giving patients an inaccurate dosage
  • Administering the wrong medication
  • Failing to obtain information on medications a patient may currently be taking to ensure there is no adverse interaction
  • A drug maker withholding information about potential risks or side effects
  • A medical professional dispensing a different patient’s drugs
  • Giving a patient medicine to which they are allergic to

If you are involved in a pharmaceutical error, retain all information including names and addresses of all parties involved and keep all prescriptions and containers of dispensed medications.
