There are many different types of medication errors that occur in doctor's offices, pharmacies, hospitals and nursing homes throughout Pennsylvania:

  • Failure to give medication
  • Giving too much medication
  • Giving the wrong type of medication
  • Prescribing the wrong and dangerous combination of drugs
  • Prescribing a medication despite a known drug allergy
  • Giving inadequate instructions or directions
  • Substitution of one incorrect drug for another

There are many reasons why medication errors occur. Many physicians fail to take a complete medical history, document the medications to which a patient has allergies or medications that a patient already takes. Many doctors also overprescribe medication or they prescribe medications that are much stronger than necessary, with bad side effects.

What To Do If You Suspect A Medication Error

If you suspect that a medication error is the cause of a serious health problem or the death of a loved one, you must act quickly. If you have lost a loved one, and suspect that there has been a medication error, you may need to consider whether an autopsy should be performed.
