What are common medications that are confused at the pharmacy or in the hospital?
There are many ways in which a pharmacy or a hospital can mix up a medication. Sometimes, messy handwriting by the doctor can cause errors, or a similar sounding drug name can cause errors. Many drugs are given incorrectly, either to the wrong person, in the wrong dose, or the wrong medication altogether.
