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.
