Incorrect Prescription Dangers
Some patients believe that medical malpractice occurs only in the hospital or doctor’s office, but prescription drug errors may also cause these types of dangerous accidents. Some of the causes of an incorrect prescription may include:
- Error in selecting the drug to give to patients
- Failure to correctly spell the drug name
- Assigning the incorrect dosage for a drug
- Incorrect information about the frequency or length of drug consumption
Anyone who has suffered from an incorrect prescription may experience symptoms such as nausea and vomiting, organ failure, loss of brain function, and a worsening of the original condition.
