Pharmacist mistakes happen all too frequently

When you get a prescription filled at your local pharmacy, you assume that it will be 100 percent accurate regarding the drug and the dosage.

Unfortunately, there are times when pharmacists make mistakes. Patients may end up taking the wrong medication entirely, or take higher or lower doses than what their doctors' prescribed.

There are many risk factors that increase the likelihood of a pharmacist mistake, including: work environment, the number of pharmacists on staff, workload, experience, and the number of years the druggist worked at the pharmacy.

Here is a short list of some of the medications commonly involved in errors:

-- Influenza virus vaccine

-- Dexamethasone injection 4 mg

-- Warfarin sodium 5 mg tablet

-- Piperacillin/tazobactam

-- Pneumococcal vaccine

Many patients face adverse consequences due to medication errors. Some are fortunate to be able to avoid serious complications or worsened conditions. But there are also times when pharmacy errors cause life-threatening complications or even death.

Despite the fact that every pharmacy has safety systems in place for avoiding errors, mistakes can and will continue to happen in the future.

At our law firm, we have worked with many clients who have been the victims of pharmacist mistakes. If you find yourself in this position, don't hesitate to seek medical assistance to mitigate any ill effects and let you regain control of your health.

Our attorneys can inform you about your legal rights after suffering ill effects from a pharmacy error. Your options might include filing a lawsuit for malpractice or negligence. Many cases wind up being settled before they ever get to court, but we are always prepared to litigate our clients' cases in court to be judged on their own merit.
