Do computers reduce the number of prescription drug mistakes?

Not always. While research has shown that automating the prescription ordering process can cut back on medication errors, mistakes still happen because a staff member failed to check the information on the order.

A mistake can happen at the pharmacy computer when:

  • A pharmacy technician fails to verify the prescription. Staff members may assume that information on a screen is automatically correct. However, technicians are required to check digital prescriptions against written ones to catch dangerous medication errors before they happen.
  • Pharmacist does not confirm medication. Pharmacy software programs often show a picture of the medication so the staff member filling the order can be sure he has given the patient the correct drug. This simple skipped step can lead to a serious error.
  • A technician misfiles the patient orders. After the label is printed, a staff member must correctly file the order by the patient’s last name. Medication errors often happen when two patients with the same name share a pharmacy, or if the technician does not read a patient’s name correctly.

Our attorneys know that the only way to prevent pharmacies from making these dangerous mistakes is to hold them accountable for them. Our experience helping clients file prescription drug error lawsuits has made us trusted counselors in medication error cases nationwide.
