What can you do if a pharmacy breached their duty of care to you?

We trust that pharmacies are watching out for our safety, but we simply cannot rely on these corporations to have our best interest at heart. These huge pharmacies have only their bottom line in mind, not patient safety.

Pharmacists have a duty to patients to follow a standard of care. There are many steps that pharmacists take in order to prevent errors, including:

  • checking with the doctor if a written prescription is unclear; 
  • double checking dosage amounts and dosage instructions; 
  • checking that the labels match patient information.

Pharmacists are not out to hurt people, but they are human and they make mistakes. They are also many times overworked and stressed while trying to meet corporation quotas for filling prescriptions. Mistakes can occur at any step along the way, and when a pharmacist fails to follow the proper steps to ensure safety when filling a prescription, you can take action against these pharmacy errors.

If you have questions about prescription errors or medication errors, order our free book, How to Make Pharmacies Pay for Your Injuries Caused by Medication Errors, to get answers. You can also call our office at 888-526-7616 for a free case review.
