Medication errors and “adverse drug events” (ADEs) cause serious injuries to thousands of unsuspecting patients each year. In some cases, medication errors or ADEs can be fatal. Doctors, pharmacists and nurses are responsible for ensuring that their patients receive the right medications and in the appropriate dosage. When they fail to do so, they may be guilty of negligence and medical malpractice.
Medication errors can occur at anytime and in a variety of places—including in your home, in your doctor’s office, in the hospital or at the pharmacy.
Despite advances in medical science and the implementation of strict industry standards, medication mistakes happen far too frequently. Doctor error in prescribing, pharmacist errors in labeling or dispensing, or nurse error in the administration of the medication are frequently to blame for a patient’s injuries.
Because medication errors can occur in many ways and for many different reasons, it is often difficult to determine who is responsible. If you suspect that you or a loved one has been seriously injured as result of a medication error, it is vital that you talk to an experienced medical malpractice attorney as soon as possible.
