What Are Medication Errors?
Medication may seem straightforward, but if medical personnel make a mistake, you could be harming yourself by taking it. From the doctor’s prescription to the pharmacist’s handling of the medication, anyone could be liable in a medical malpractice suit.
Taylor, Tucker & Jones, LLC, can help those affected by medication errors, including:
- Failing to prescribe proper medication
- Administering medication incorrectly
- Failing to administer medication at all
- Administering the incorrect amount, causing an overdose
- Failing to gain a complete medical history to detect allergies or intolerance
- Pharmacist prescription errors
Physicians have a responsibility to ensure medications they order are appropriate and administered correctly, and hospitals have a similar obligation to make sure medications are appropriate and given as prescribed.
We make a positive recovery in over 98% of the cases we pursue.
