Injuries Due To Prescription Drug Errors
Advances in modern medicine have allowed doctors to accomplish amazing things in terms of helping patients recuperate from injuries and illnesses. Prescription drugs can become deadly, however, if the wrong dosage or type of medication is prescribed.
Serious consequences also result when pharmacists fail to correctly fill a prescription and patients are given the wrong prescription. The automated machines and computers used by today’s pharmacies are designed to reduce errors and make things simpler. In reality, however, millions of Americans suffer from pharmacy malpractice every day. Even a small mistake by a pharmacist can have disastrous consequences.
