Have you received the wrong liquid from a pharmacy?

Wrong liquid prescription at pharmacyEvery day, thousands of people visit their local pharmacy to drop off a prescription and then come back to pick it up. Few of us would ever imagine that those professionals in white coats make mistakes. After all, patient safety is supposed to be their top priority.

The reality of the situation is that there is always a risk of pharmacy error. Behind the shop front, a different story unfolds as pharmacists employed by large chains are under pressure to fill hundreds of prescriptions daily, and errors occur much more often than pharmacies would like to admit.

One in Five Prescriptions are Pharmacy Errors
Recent research has revealed that stressful workloads and continuous distractions all make a contribution to pharmacists' mistakes and no fewer than one in five prescriptions administered, including liquid products from pharmacies, result in some type of pharmacy error.

Alarmingly, around 13% of those errors could harm the patient. In percentage terms this might seem small, but 3% of the three billion prescriptions issued in the U.S. every year leads to roughly 90 million harmful prescription errors.

The USP Medication Errors Reporting (MER) Program has processed many of the reports about wrong liquids filled at a pharmacy. One example is the topical Lindane prescription, which has been mixed up with oral liquid prescriptions.

Topical Prescriptions Confused with Cough Syrup
One recent mistake occurred when a distracted pharmacist prepared a liquid cough prescription with topical lindane medicine. It seems that both products are made and packaged by the same manufacturer and, although kept in different areas of the pharmacy, the stock bottles reportedly looked similar.
Overworked pharmacists and pharmacy errors
Today's drugstores are simply overflowing with pharmacists having to wear too many hats. They not only supervise pharmacy technicians with different skill levels, but also have to communicate with physicians' offices, handle drive-through orders, advise patients picking up medications, answer the phones, and more. As a result, pharmacy malpractice occurs more often than we know.
