What kinds of pharmacy mistakes can lead to a prescription drug error lawsuit?

Unfortunately, there are almost as many different kinds of medication errors as there are drugs on the market today. The majority of mistakes are due to wrong medications, wrong patients, or wrong dosages, but there are a number of factors that contribute to the number of drug injury cases in the U.S.

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.
