Prescription Errors Lawyer in Columbus
Were You Harmed by an Incorrect Prescription?
Prescription errors are a common mistake made by negligent doctors and
pharmaceutical workers. Whether it involves filling an obviously wrong
prescription, filling the prescription with the wrong medication, or prescribing
a harmful dosage, these types of mistakes can lead to adverse side effects
in patients and sometimes even death. Medical professionals who fail to

lives at risk and can cause lasting damage.

Common Prescription Errors
By taking shortcuts, nurses and physicians can sometimes prescribe improper
medication to patients. Carelessness of this type is very serious, as
bad combinations and incorrect doses of drugs could potentially be lethal.
This is considered a breach of their “duty of care,” or their
responsibility to provide honest and accurate medical care to their patients
– in other words, it constitutes malpractice.
The most common types of errors committed are:
- Administering improper dosage
- Filling the wrong prescription
- Prescribing the wrong drug
- Overlooking potential reactions
Faulty prescriptions are not limited to pharmaceutical products. The term
extends to eyeglasses as well, as failing to check the prescription can
cause lasting damage to eyesight in children.
Nursing homes are also very susceptible to errors in medication, as those with dementia
may be unable to resist against an improper dosage or administration.
