3 Tips to avoid pharmacy errors and keep your family safe
Medication errors injure 1.3 million people every year. We need to be vigilant and insist that our doctors and our pharmacists are paying attention to our medical needs. If you have been the victim of a pharmacy error due to bad handwriting or bad transcription, you may have a claim, and be able to sue the pharmacy or the doctor or both.

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. Order a FREE copy of our book, "How to Make Pharmacies Pay for your Injuries Caused by Medication Errors," to learn more about what you can do to fight back. Order your free book by calling 877-342-2020 or by filling out our confidential online form.
