How often do pharmacy errors occur when doctors send handwritten prescriptions to the pharmacy?


One big cause of pharmacy errors occurs when a pharmacist cannot read or interpret a written prescription from a doctor. In cases like this, pharmacists have a duty of care to you to double check a prescription by contacting the doctor who prescribed the medication.

A recent study tracked medication errors in two Australian hospitals before and after installing electronic prescription systems and found that there is a 60 percent drop in hospitals when doctors switch from handwritten prescriptions to electronic prescriptions.
