Medical Malpractice & Prescription Drugs

There are two main types of prescription drug errors that are related to medical malpractice:

  • Wrong prescription - a patient may be prescribed, administered or dispensed the wrong prescription drug, either due to a doctor error, pharmacy error or error made by a nurse.
  • Wrong dose - a patient may be administered or prescribed the wrong dose of medicine, even if this was the right prescription drug the results may be catastrophic, particularly if the dosage amount is far too high.

A less common type of prescription error is that involving a medicine being prescribed to which the patient has a known allergy or which will react negatively to medication that the patient is already taking or has already been administered.
