What Are Pharmacy and Medication Errors?
A prescription error can occur when a patient receives the wrong medication or the wrong dosage of the correct medication. A doctor can make an error by prescribing the wrong medication, prescribing the wrong dose of a medication, failing to take a history of the patient’s current medications, failing to identify drug interactions, and failing to identify drug allergies. Prescription errors can also take place when the prescription is sent to the pharmacy, or at the pharmacy when the prescription is being filled.
Pharmacies are busy places, and the staff often has to work at a rapid pace. There are numerous ways in which a pharmacy can make medication errors, including:
- Giving someone another person’s prescription
- Placing the wrong medication in a correctly labeled bottle
- Failing to check with doctor regarding unclear prescriptions
- Failing to provide proper usage instructions
- Labeling a prescription with incorrect instructions
- Giving the correct medication but in the wrong dose
