We Understand the Catastrophic Effects of Medication Errors

Doctors, pharmacists, nurses, and other medical professionals are held to high standards of care when it comes to prescribing, dispensing, and administering medications. Some of the most common medication errors include:

  • Failing to follow diagnostic standards of care when prescribing medication
  • Failing to consider drug interactions
  • Prescribing a drug to which the patient is allergic
  • Prescribing, dispensing, or administering the wrong dosage of a medication
  • Failing to administer a needed medication
  • Administering medication by the wrong route or otherwise failing to follow the dosing protocol

Some medication errors result in a patient suffering complications due to drug interactions, overdoses, or allergic reactions. In other cases, the medication administered does not treat the patient’s underlying medical condition, causing the patient’s health to worsen. Either way, lives can be lost or changed forever, and negligent medical professionals need to be held accountable. Our seasoned Watertown medication error attorneys can help.
