Prescription Drug Error

When prescribed and filled correctly, prescription drugs can effectively treat thousands of illnesses and medical conditions. However, human error in the prescription process can sometimes cause illness, injury, and even death. For example, a doctor or pharmacist could confuse two medications with similar names. A pharmacist could misread a doctor’s handwritten prescription. A pharmacy employee could make a mistake while receiving a prescription over the phone. These and other possibilities for human error make it extremely important for you to exercise care before taking any medication.
