Help for victims of prescription drug errors

There are different ways that the trust of hospital and medical patients may be violated by medical errors. Medical errors can result in devastating impacts for victims which is why victims and their families have to be familiar with medical malpractice legal resources available to help with the harm they have suffered. Medical malpractice refers to a broad category of medical negligence that may result in harm.

Medical negligence can include prescription drug errors which can seriously harm victims. Medication errors can cause prescription drugs that would normally be safe to be unsafe and result in serious harm to victims. Different medical professionals may be held liable for the harm resulting from prescription drug errors. Medical professionals including the prescribing physician; pharmacy staff; and nurses or other hospital staff administering medication may all be liable for a prescription drug error depending on the circumstances.

Prescription drug errors can occur when medical care professionals fail to monitor dosages of drugs or drug combinations; when an allergic or adverse reaction is overlooked in medical records; when prescription drugs are mislabeled; when a prescription has been written illegibly; or there is miscommunication between health care professionals. Prescription drug errors can violate a patient's trust in their healthcare and result in significant harm.

Medical malpractice protections and legal resources can help victims recover compensation for the physical, financial and emotional damages suffered as a result of a medication error or other medical negligence. It is important for victims to be thoroughly familiar with these legal resources available to protect them.
