Types Of Medication Errors
Medication errors don’t just happen in the hospital and they aren’t caused just by doctors. Many health care professionals, including prescribing doctors, administering nurses and pharmacists, may inadvertently make a medication mistake.
Health care professionals can make medication mistakes in many ways, including:
- Prescribing the wrong medication
- Prescribing a medication that adversely reacts with other medications
- Dispensing the wrong dosage of medication/medication overdose
- Failure to follow and monitor patients appropriately
- Failure to notify patients of the potential side effects of a medication
- Failure to notify patients that they are part of an experimental program
