Why are Pharmacy Errors so common?

Any time there is a human involved, there is a chance for errors to be made. With the number of pharmacists actually shrinking, the number of prescriptions growing, and the population aging, errors are increasingly common. 
The many reasons for pharmacy mistakes can include:
  • Overworked pharmacists and technicians. Pharmacists and their helpers work between 12 and 16 hours every day, without any rest breaks or meal breaks.
  • These hardworking people also have 2-3 minutes to fill between 300 and 400 scripts every day.
  • The corporations they work for have bean-counters who crunch numbers and decide how many scripts have to be filled to make maximum profits. They don't have the patients' or their employees' best interest at heart.
  • Distractions. On top of all this, customers are complaining about the wait, asking directions to grocery items or the bathroom, and the phone is ringing off the hook. 
All types of errors can occur: 
Wrong Medication
Wrong Dosage
Kids Rx Errors
Walgreens claims
CVS claims
