Were you or a family member injured because a health care professional was negligent in prescribing, delivering or administering medications?
A medication error that results in harm to a patient may have its origin in one or more sources of negligence:
- A prescribing physician
- A pharmacist
- A nurse
- An anesthetist
- A drug manufacturer
A doctor may neglect to screen for potential interactions with other drugs that a patient has been taking. He or she may prescribe the wrong medication or the wrong dosage of a drug.
An anesthetist during surgery or a nurse in a nursing home may commit human error while administering medications.
A drug manufacturer may release medications that have not been adequately tested, or worse, may release drugs that had caused harm to some patients who took part in testing of the drug, without adequately warning the public of dangers.
