How a Pharmacist Can Cause Dangerous Errors
Throughout the day, a pharmacist will be tasked with reading and filling numerous prescriptions of a wide variety. There are certainly many things to juggle at any given time, but this is not an excuse for making a pharmacy or prescription error.
Mistakes a pharmacist can make that lead to a patient’s injury include:
- Incorrect medication - Mixing up one medication for another can be catastrophic. Even substances of similar chemical composition and medical purpose can cause much different reactions when used.
- Incorrect dosage - Giving a patient the wrong dosage of the right medicine can lead to numerous health problems, most notably the exacerbation of preexisting symptoms.
- Incorrect patient - Giving one patient the prescription of another patient is altogether another error a pharmacist can accidentally make. .
Taking the wrong medicine or using the wrong dosage of the right medicine can trigger side effects that range from mild to life-threatening or fatal. Each situation is different from the next, so it can be difficult to predict the consequences of a prescription error.
