One of the most common types of medical malpractice that occurs in medical facilities around the country is errors with drugs and medications. In many cases, the medication errors that doctors, nurses, pharmacists and others commit are due to negligence and the failure to provide a reasonable standard of care to patients.
It is a doctor’s and pharmacist’s responsibility to ensure you are taken care of as a patient. Failing to properly check the type or amount of a drug, or how drugs could react with one another, puts your health and safety at risk.
