Medication errors occur when a healthcare professional makes a mistake in prescribing, dispensing, or administering medication to a patient, resulting in harm or injury to the patient. Medication errors can occur in many different settings, such as hospitals, clinics, pharmacies, or even at home.
Examples of medication errors include prescribing the wrong medication, administering the wrong dose of medication, failing to consider a patient’s allergies or other medical conditions when prescribing medication, or failing to monitor a patient’s medication use for adverse effects.
Medication errors can have serious consequences, such as allergic reactions, drug interactions, organ damage, or even death. Patients who have suffered harm due to medication errors may be entitled to compensation for their injuries.
