Tips to keep your family safe from prescription errors:
- Be ever vigilant. Make sure you write down the doctor's instructions, the name of your medicine and the dosage before you leave the exam room.
- Ask your doctor about side effects and what to watch for with your medicine.
- When you pick up your prescription, check the labels against your notes before you leave the pick-up counter. If you spot a mistake, don't leave the pharmacy until it is corrected. This will help you keep you and your family from being the victim of a medication mix-up.
If you are the victim of a pharmacy error, or your loved one died as result of a medication mistake you may have a claim against the hospital, the dispensing pharmacy, or the doctor.
