Medication Errors

Philadelphia Medical Malpractice Lawyers Explain Victims' Rights

When medication is prescribed and administered correctly, it can save a patient's life. But when prescribed incorrectly, medications can cause serious harm to patients. Some medications may trigger allergies, while others may react negatively with previously prescribed drugs. Your doctor must take into consideration your unique health factors before prescribing medication. Medication error can also occur when a pharmacist mistakenly fills a prescription for the wrong patient or when a nurse administers a dosage that is too high or too low. The truth is, medicine is not "one size fits all."

Medication errors can cause adverse reactions in patients such as:
  • Coma
