The nurse in charge of my family member administered the wrong dose of medication. She is to blame for his prescription drug injury, right?

After someone you love has suffered the consequences of a prescription drug mistake, you will no doubt be looking to hold someone responsible. After all, we are fiercely protective of our loved ones, and those who caused them harm should have to pay.

Many people are quick to blame the last person who touched the medication before it was given—regardless of whether that person is really at fault. Although nurses are charged with double-checking medications, the mistake could have been made at any point in the process. Errors can happen:

  • When the order is written or transcribed
  • When the medication label is printed
  • If a verbal order is misunderstood
  • If the method of administration is incorrect
  • If the medication has not been double-checked

While any (or all) of these instances could be the reason for error, many times it is not the fault of one person. In most cases, victims of prescription drug errors will seek compensation from the hospital or care facility where the error occurred. This is important, because the outcome has more positive effects: Rather than firing an individual who might be held responsible and ignoring the true causes of error, the hospital can evaluate why the mistake occurred and stop it from happening again.

The attorneys at Kennedy Hodges can help you get the compensation you deserve for your suffering, as well as the peace of mind that comes from knowing you have helped to prevent these errors from happening in the future.
