What Type Of Medication Mistake Happened In Your Case?
Sometimes simple mistakes result in serious injury. The following are types of medication errors that can lead to serious injury:
- Misunderstanding of prescription due to illegible handwriting
- Misplaced decimal points in relation to prescribed doses
- Lack of appropriate labels
- Wrong abbreviations
- Confusion among drugs with similar names
- Lack of knowledge of patient history (allergies, previous conditions, lab tests)
