Bad Environments for Pharmacists Mean More Kids Prescription Errors

A pharmacist may work in a grocery store, drug store, clinic, or hospital, and the environment in each of these locations can have a huge impact on a pharmacist. Environment is not only the location where someone works, but it can also encompass the layout of the work area, the attitude of the manager and other co-workers, working on one’s feet all day, and the working hours expected of an individual. 

While some pharmacies are open longer hours to meet the needs of the public, it may be a bad environment for pharmacists. This may be because pharmacists can be tired if they are not used to working late nights or early mornings. Tiredness can lead to kids’ prescription errors and other medication mistakes.

According to the Office of National Drug Control Policy, there are approximately five billion prescriptions filled each year in this nation, and about five percent of these prescriptions are incorrect. This may be a clear indication that pharmacists do not like their environments. 

Where someone works can mean everything. Some drug chains encourage their pharmacists to fill hundreds of prescriptions per day and reward fast work, according to a USA TODAY investigation. Sadly, this type of environment can cause pharmacists to make mistakes and not fill all prescriptions correctly.

When pharmacists are overworked and have poor environments, drug errors can occur. If your child has been a victim of a pharmacy error that caused injuries or death, please call a caring and experienced children’s pharmacy error attorney at Kennedy Hodges at 888-526-7616 today to receive a free consultation and a free copy of our report How to Make Pharmacies Pay for Injuries Caused by Medication Errors.
