The Dangers Of Prescription Drug Errors
More and more prescription drugs today offer relief to so many of us who suffer an ever-growing range of medical conditions. But if they are not prescribed properly or with caution, injury and death can result.
Common Types Of Medical Errors
Some of the common medication errors that harm patients include:
- Under Medication
- Wrong medication
- Anesthesia errors
- Failing to note harmful combinations of drugs
- Failure to monitor the effects of medication
The result of these medication errors can include:
- Liver damage
- Kidney damage
- Stopped breathing
Do You Suspect Your Injury Was Caused By Your Medication?
Hospitals, clinics and pharmacists have a duty to patients to make sure they properly prescribe these medications and offer information about the risks associated.
If you suspect your injury was caused by your prescription drug, reach out to a legal professional immediately. Hospitals and clinics are rarely forthcoming with information that will indicate any error on their part. Uncovering the truth needs skilled legal representation.
