What is a Medication Error?
A medication error is a form of medical malpractice related to the prescribing or use of medications for a patient. Doctors and primary care physicians have a duty to accurately diagnose a patient’s illness or injury and match their needs with certain prescription medicines. The pharmacist who is handed the prescription then has the duty to ensure the prescription is filled out accordingly. Both the doctor and the pharmacist or pharmacy technician are responsible for discussing with the patient the proper way to take the medication at home.
Medication errors can also happen in hospital settings, making them a form of hospital error. Nurses are generally the hospital staff members tasked with administering medication to a patient in proper dosages and at routine intervals. Any failure to meet the accepted medical standards by a doctor, nurse, or pharmacist that results in patient harm can constitute medical malpractice and call for fair compensation to be given to the patient.
