Medication can be a double-edged sword. When properly prescribed and administered, it can save lives. Yet inexcusable mistakes — whether missed doses, wrong doses or the wrong medication entirely — can have serious consequences.
Medication errors are more common than you might think. They can happen in any setting, including:
- Outpatient facilities
- Nursing homes
The medication at issue could be a powerful controlled substance, a prescription drug or even an over-the-counter medication. The doctors, nurse, pharmacists or facility itself might all be at fault.
Pursuing accountability for these errors is not always easy. The legal system imposes high standards for medical malpractice cases. Expensive medical experts may be necessary for establishing that negligence occurred. As a result, the most successful claims are typically those involving severe and permanent injuries or death.
