Medication Mistakes & Errors

Medication errors are the most common type of medical malpractice. These cases involve a doctor, nurse, pharmacist or other professional in the field of medicine who prescribes, administers or dispenses the wrong medication or dose to a patient. Depending on the type of medication and the dose, this may result in minor side effects, serious injury or the death of the patient. In these situations the injured patient or the family of a patient who lost his or her life may be able to seek justice against the responsible medical professional or facility.

A Sonoma County personal injury attorney at our law firm can talk to you about your legal rights if a mistake or error by a medical professional led to you receiving, being prescribed or being administered the wrong medication or wrong dose. We also handle cases involving a doctor who prescribes a medicine to which you have a known allergy or that reacts violently to another medication you are currently taking. In any of these situations, you may have been left with lasting injuries and medical bills that need to be paid. A lawyer at our firm can help you seek the financial compensation that will help you with medical expenses and other injuries or losses caused by the medication error.

Types of Medication Errors

There are three primary types of medication errors: the wrong medication, the wrong dose of the right medication, and a medication from which the patient has an adverse reaction. These errors may happen because a doctor is careless, writes down the wrong medicine, misdiagnoses a patient or does not properly review a patient’s chart. A nurse may accidentally pick up the wrong medication off the shelf. A pharmacist may misread the prescription slip. Any of these or similar situations may cause a medication error to occur.
