How Common are Wrong Dosage Errors in Texas Hospitals?

Not only are dosage errors fairly common, but they are the medication mistake most likely to have a permanent impact on the life of someone you love.
According to an FDA study:
  • Improper dosage of medicine accounted for 41% of all medication errors that resulted in death.
  • In cases where the patient survived, hospital treatment costs were estimated at $3.5 billion as a result of medication error.
  • Although only 2% of hospital medication errors actually cause patient harm, studies estimate that up to 50% have the potential to cause harm, but do not affect the patient due to other factors.
  • The amount of harm caused by medication error is likely to be much greater in intensive care units and radiological services.
The best way to prevent a Houston pharmacy error is to take control of your own care. Whenever you are given any medication, always ask the name of the drug, the dosage prescribed, and the effects it will have on you. Read all labels carefully, making sure you see your own name, your doctor's name, and any special storage instructions.
