A key aspect of any medication error case is determining where the error was made and who made it. From prescribing doctors to pharmacists, multiple people are involved in dispensing medication who could make a mistake that leads to serious medical concerns:
- Pharmacy errors and prescription errors: If your pharmacy does not fill your prescription correctly, you could end up taking the wrong medicine.
- Doctor errors: If a doctor fails to recognize a contraindication or look at your medical history, he or she could prescribe you the wrong type or amount of medicine.
- Hospital errors: Often acting without a full spectrum of information, hospitals could dispense the wrong drug or wrong quantity.
