Prescription / Pharmaceutical Mistakes
When a healthcare provider prescribes and dispenses pharmaceutical drugs while treating a patient, they have a responsibility to insure that it is provided within the required standard of care. This requires that the correct medication is provided, the correct dosage is dispensed, and the drug is not contra-indicated for the patient’s condition, treatment, care or allergies.
Pharmaceutical errors may occur under a number of common scenarios, including:
- IImproper Packaging.
- Illegible Handwriting.
- Incorrect Dosage.
- Drug Interactions.
- Up to date warnings.
- Failure to provide Informed Consent.
- Administrative Mistakes.
- Failure to diagnose/ treat abnormal test results.
- Failure to account for contra-indicated drugs.
A prescription mistake can cause serious injury or may even be fatal. If you or a loved one has been injured or died as a result of a pharmaceutical error you may be entitled to compensation.
