Medication Errors

Our medication and prescription drug error attorneys understand that medication errors do happen. Even drugs that have been FDA approved and are otherwise safe can cause you harm when errors are made in their administration. This is medical malpractice in Pennsylvania. Even though some medication errors may not cause much harm at all, our medication and prescription drug errors lawyers understand that some errors can cause serious complications for the patient, including death. There are a number of medication errors that can cause a patient harm, including:

  • dispensing or administering the wrong medication;
  • writing a prescription for the wrong medication;
  • dispensing or administering the wrong dosage of a medication;
  • administering medications at the wrong time or interval;
  • administering two medications which conflict with one another;
  • administering one patient’s medication to another patient.

Many of us have taken some type of medication at some time in our life. Be it a tablespoon of cough medicine administered to a sick child, or a heavy-duty antibiotic prescribed after serious surgery, medications are important to our health and quality of life. We rely on medical professionals, like doctors, nurses and pharmacists, to educate us about our our choices of medications and ensure that those we choose to take are properly administered.

Representing clients who have been injured by a medication error requires a team of lawyers, nurses and others trained to review the facts of these cases, including medical records.
