Types of Errors
A pharmaceutical error is not always a glaring mistake that can be easily identified. Sometimes it may be a single typographical error in the prescription which results in the wrong medication or dosage. Some of the common types of medication errors that can harm a patient include:
- Drug side effects
- Incorrect labeling
- Incorrect dosage
- Incorrect prescription
- Drug interaction / complications
Any of these errors can lead to the incorrect administration of a pharmaceutical drug. When a doctor or pharmacist makes a mistake, he or she may be held legally accountable for medical malpractice. The patient or his or her family has the right to initiate a lawsuit to recover compensation for related medical bills, lost wages from time off of work, recovery costs, and pain and suffering.
