Medication errors, such as failing to administer a proper dosage or prescribing the wrong medication, are one of the primary issues in all medical malpractice cases. At a medical facility, nurses and other hospital workers carry a great responsibility to provide medications for patients, and can ultimately be held liable for injuries or illness that results from medication errors. If you have suffered medical malpractice in the form of a medication error, a Bronx personal injury attorney from our firm can help you pursue just compensation.
Medication Error Injury Information
Different factors, such as illegible handwriting, can play a role in your medical error case. Hospitals should care about providing patients with high-quality health services to minimize overdoses and other medication errors. Some of the most common medication error cases involve:
- Dangerous drug combinations
- Negligent dosage monitoring
- Allergic reactions
Medical physicians should be aware of the dangers associated with medications and should take the proper steps to prevent injuries and illness; the failure to do so could be considered medical malpractice. If pharmacists, doctors, nurses, and other medical practitioners make errors in relation to medication, they should be held responsible under the law.
