According to a study done by the United States Pharmacopeia, there are many underlying causes that can lead to a medication error. For example, the following have all led to serious drug-induced injuries:
- Poor handwriting
- Unfamiliarity with drug names or uses
- New products on the market
- Similar naming, packaging, or labeling
- Incorrect selection of a drug from an electronic product list
Many of these errors can be caught before they cause damage by using computerized monitoring systems. However, these fail-safes have little effect when a prescription is handwritten or spoken aloud.
