Medication Errors

Medical malpractice can take many different forms. Often, medical professionals make mistakes when prescribing and administering medication to patients. Many medications are extremely potent, and if an individual is given the wrong drug or the correct drug in the wrong amount, it can have devastating consequences. If you have been injured because of a medication or prescription error, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries and losses.

Types of Medication Mistakes

When you visit a healthcare facility, your doctor will often specify orders and a treatment plan that other medical staff must observe in order to treat your illness or injury. It is the responsibility of these professionals to do everything they can to ensure that your treatment is followed according to the doctor’s orders. However, any of the medical professionals involved in treating you could make a mistake. Mistakes related to your medication could include:

  • Prescribing the wrong medication
  • Administering the wrong medication
  • Giving the incorrect amount of medication
  • Administering the medication for too long
  • Not administering the medication long enough

As a patient, you deserve to have the best treatment possible for your injury or illness. When you are not properly treated, you may be eligible for compensation.
