Types of pharmaceutical errors cases we handle
Pharmaceutical errors can occur at any point in the manufacturing, distribution, and prescription of a medication. This would include errors during:
- Manufacturing: If a drug is manufactured incorrectly, even if you are prescribed and administered the right dosage, you can suffer harm.
- Repackaging/packaging: If medication is placed in an incorrect package, you can end up taking the wrong drugs for your illness or injury.
- Dispensing: Doctor’s are notorious for their poor handwriting. If a doctor writes a prescription, but the pharmacy misreads it and fills it incorrectly, you can end up taking incorrect dosages, or even the wrong medication entirely.
- Prescribing: If your doctor prescribes the wrong medication or wrong dosage of a medication, your injury or illness could be left untreated and get worse, or you may even develop an entirely new problem.
- Administering: This error is especially common while in the hospital. If a nurse is in charge of administering your medication for you and misreads or simply fails to follow instructions, you can suffer great harm.
- Monitoring: If, while in the hospital, your medicine isn’t working as it should be, a health care professional should notice this and take action. If they fail to do so and just continue to administer improper medication, harm can come to you.
At any of these steps in the process, causes of these errors include but are not limited to:
- Ambiguities in product names or brands, administering or dosage instructions, medical terminology, poor handwriting
- Poor medical procedures or questionable techniques
- Patient misuse due to poor instruction for use or dosage
- Poor communication, either between the doctor and the pharmacist, between the manufacture and the pharmacist, between doctor and patient, etc.
- Lack of product knowledge
- Similar packaging or labeling of medication
All of these factors and more can contribute to a pharmaceutical error that ultimately affects your health and well-being. When you’re suffering from an injury or illness, you often need medication to help you heal. If a pharmaceutical error means you don’t receive that medication, your injury or illness can worsen, sometimes to an extreme degree. Furthermore, if you receive the correct medication but in the wrong dosage, the medicine may not help enough, allowing your injury or illness to worsen, or it may create new problems. Similarly, if you receive the wrong medication for your problem, it can create new problems while allowing the existing problems to worsen.
We trust healthcare professionals to improve our health, not make it worse. If a healthcare professional’s negligence has resulted in a pharmaceutical error that has caused you harm, you can pursue a lawsuit to recover financial compensation for your suffering.
