Medication Errors

Medication Error Attorneys in Northwest Florida

According to one study, medication errors in hospitals and clinical settings happen frequently — as often as one medication error per patient day. Most of these errors cause no harm, but some can result in serious injury or death. If a loved one has suffered harm as the result of a medication error in a hospital, clinic, or nursing home, you should speak with an attorney as soon as possible. You have the right to claim compensation for the wrongs done to your loved one. And by taking action, you may prevent another person from suffering serious injury or death.

How Do Medication Errors Happen?

A medication error can occur in several ways:

  • The wrong medication can be prescribed.
  • The wrong dosage of a medication can be dispensed.
  • A nurse or other medical professional can fail to administer the medication properly by giving the patient the wrong medication, skipping a dose, or doubling a dose.
  • The medical reconciliation is not completed properly.

Medical reconciliation is the process by which a nurse or medical practitioner compares a patient’s medication orders to the list of medications the patient has been taking. It is a way to identify mistakes of drug dosage, omissions, duplications, and interactions. Medical reconciliation must be accomplished properly at every patient transition, and failure to do so is the leading cause of medication errors.
