Incorrect Dosages And Wrong Medications

Prescription drugs are subject to strict controls and regulations for good reason. They can cause immense harm if improperly administered. Accuracy is critical, and there is no room for error. Even seemingly minor mistakes can be catastrophic for patients whose health is already in jeopardy.

Pharmacies are charged with the important responsibility to accurately dispense prescription medications. They serve as the gatekeepers between patients and potentially dangerous drugs.

When pharmacists fail to uphold their obligations, you — the patient — could suffer the consequences.

The most serious prescription errors involve inaccurate dosages or wrong medications. These types of negligence not only deprive the patients of the benefits they need from the correct treatment, but they can also worsen their condition and inflict additional harm.

When Children Become Victims Of Pharmacy Errors

Children are especially prone to adverse effects from the wrong medication or dosage. Their smaller size makes them more sensitive to dosage errors. Providing an adult dosage to a child, for example, can prove fatal. And because many prescription drugs are not recommended for children — especially those whose health is already in a fragile state — the wrong medication can be equally damaging.
