Is there a way to tell how serious my prescription drug error injury is?

After you are given the wrong medication at the pharmacy, you may wonder how such a thing can happen. After all, there should be safeguards in place to protect patients from potential prescription drug injuries. 

Unfortunately, these safeguards may not work if the staff does not take error reporting seriously. A lack of reporting often leads to a lack of training, increasing the risk of repeating the mistake in the future. 

The American Society of Hospital Pharmacists rates the seriousness of medication errors on the following scale: 

Level 0: A potential error was detected before it caused harm.
Level 1: An error occurred, but the patient was unharmed.
Level 2: The patient was monitored or detained by the error, but was ultimately unharmed.
Level 3: The patient’s vital signs changed as a result of the error, but the change was temporary.
Level 4: An error caused the patient to need corrective treatment with another drug, undergo a procedure, or suffer an increased length of hospital stay.
Level 5: The error caused permanent patient harm.
Level 6: The error was directly responsible for the patient’s death.

Our pharmacy error injury lawyersknow that these injuries can have a range of devastating effects. Any one of the above can result in hospitalization, weeks of care that can prevent the victim form returning to work, or even the wrongful death of a family member.
