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:
- Wrong 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.
- Wrong dosage: Giving a patient the wrong dosage of the right medicine can lead to numerous health problems, most notably the exacerbation of preexisting symptoms.
- Wrong patient: There is also the chance a pharmacist can accidentally give one patient the prescription of another patient altogether.
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.
